World Jazz-Fusion 

Salvador Santana Band at Ashkenaz.

The Salvador Santana Band hits Berkeley's Ashkenaz with a fusion of conscious hip-hop, jazz, rock, Latin and world music. The keyboardist and singer son of Carlos Santana appeared on the Father's Day edition of CBS-TV's Saturday Early Show with his band, plus Dad sitting in on guitar. Sunday's show is a chance to see the band in the East Bay before it releases its debut CD in the fall; the group is playing the big festivals this summer, from Bonnaroo to High Sierra. The band features vocalist Quincy McCrary (from acclaimed Chicano-Afro-Cuban-rock-jazz-fusion outfit Quetzal), guitarist Woody Aplanalp (Lauryn Hill, Nels Cline, Wadada Leo Smith, Thomas Mapfumo), bassist Emerson Cardenas, drummer Tony Austin, and former Ozomatli saxophonist Jose "Crunchy" Espinoza. Sunday, July 1, 9 p.m. $8; all-ages.
