Part of 'I AM PV,' the Instituto Artes Musicales de Puerto Vallarta, a Mexican nonprofit organization, The Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra, or Pata Salada Orquesta de Jazz, is characterized by instrumentation in the style of a Big Band orchestra. The members are mostly young musicians learning jazz improvisation - the definition of jazz encompassing 3 major categories - Swing, Rock and Latin.
Established in September 2016 with 18 musicians led by the young, impassioned Director Victor Kris, it quickly evolved into a full jazz ensemble - and expanded beyond the usual jazz instrumentation, and includes violins, flutes and clarinets, adding innovative dimensions to the ensemble.
Today, The Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra has grown to 27 members and has thrilled audiences at several local venues, like Act II Stages and the Jazz Foundation in Puerto Vallarta and the Breakers Beach Club Restaurant and Bar in Bucerķas.
Come out to Galerķas Vallarta on Sunday, August 18 to enjoy this free concert and show your support of these aspiring local musicians.Galerķas Vallarta is located in the Puerto Vallarta Hotel Zone, across from the API Maritime (cruise ship) Terminal.
