I'll write a Monterey Jazz Festival wrap-up for Jazz Police when I return home on Monday. A preview: On Friday we saw the Joshua Redman Trio, Cassandra Wilson, Matt Wilson's Arts & Crafts, the Christian McBride Band, Anat Cohen, and Maraca "Cuban Lullabies," a Latin band led by cuban flautist Orlando "Maraca" Valle and featuring David Sanchez, Miguel Zenon, Giovanni Hidalgo, and Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, among others--a dream team.
