Free Event
Fri, Mar 4
7pm showtime (Pacific)
Free Admission / San José Museum of Art

Jazz guitarist, vocalist, composer and producer Kyle Hernandez delivers a fiery and distinctive sound at every concert. There is a gritty soul and passion that captures his New York roots on his most recent album as a bandleader The Kyle Hernandez Jazz Quartet, which DownBeat Magazine called “a passionate and honest” performance. 

It’s only one of three albums released since he received a scholarship to the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in Manhattan. He’s since shared the stage with musicians like Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Eric Alexander, Robert Glasper and many others. Kyle has performed at festivals and venues throughout the United States including the Reno, Savannah, Newport, Toronto and Montreal Jazz Festivals; and the Mondavi Center, Blue Note, Great American Music Hall, Rockwood Music Hall, Sullivan Hall and the Jazz Standard.
