ARTery: Pedrito Martinez Brings The Heat
A crisp New England day calls for some hot Cuban jazz, and The Pedrito Martinez Group has us covered. They’re led by percussionist Pedrito Martinez, and they’ll be performing at Johnny D’s in Somerville on Saturday.
You may not have heard of Martinez yet, but he’s collected some big fans from the world of music, including Derek Trucks, Eric Clapton, and Paul Simon, just to name a few. Add to that list Jose Masso, host of WBUR’s Con Salsa, who joins us for this week’s ARTery segment.
