20th Annual Concert to Benefit

The Lytle Scholarship

featuring the

Gilbert Castellanos Latin Band

Lytle Concert banner 2016

Gilbert Castellanos is the hottest young jazz trumpeter in the United States today. Equally adept in straight-ahead as well as Latin jazz, Castellanos has become a staple in jazz venues around the world. Castellanos comes to UC San Diego fresh from his “Living Legends of Jazz” series with the San Diego Symphony. Come and hear for yourself what the rest of the world is raving about:

“[Castellanos] plays with élan, evincing a more individual, ever-large sound offering hard swinging, often ear-grabbing solos…[proving] that music with deep roots in jazz’s glorious ’50s and ’60s can sound completely contemporary today.” LA Times

Recognized as a "New American Master" in Downbeat Magazine.
