Ventura College Green
4667 Telegraph Road, Ventura, CA
Three-time Grammy-nominated Cuban jazz sensation Tiempo Libre brings to the annual Sunday outdoor Ventura College Green concert an infectious rhythm and fresh Latin grooves. Their music is a fiercely intense mix of Latin jazz color and danceable Afro-Cuban rhythms, often combined with classical forms ala their “Bach in Havana” recording, a favorite of Artist Director Nuvi Mehta. As teen-agers growing up in Havana, Tiempo Libre developed their signature timba sound while secretly listening to forbidden American music.

Opening for Tiempo Libre is jazz newcomer, Alfredo Rodriguez, who has been wowing audiences since his discovery by producer Quincy Jones a few years ago.
