Get ready for a little samba, a little sass, and a lot of jazz, when the acclaimed multi-talented master saxophonist and composer Justo Almario brings his distinctive fusion of jazz, South-American and world rhythms to the Curtis Theatre. 

A native of Colombia, Almario (also a flutist, clarinetist and arranger), went from child protege to virtuoso by captivating audiences with his mesmerizing rhythms. His music can be heard on such diverse Grammy-winning works as Linda Ronstadt's "Frenesi", Placido Domingo's "A Mi Alma Latina", Andrae Crouch's "Mercy", Cachao's "Master Sessions", and more. A stellar artist, he has played with Queen Latifah, Jennifer Lopez, Andy Garcia, George Duke, Herb Alpert, Dianne Reeves and numerous others. Almario was also featured on the Oscar-winning soundtracks from the films Happy Feet and Sideways, has produced and played on TOLU's Rumbero's Poetry, and appeared as the featured soloist with the Los Angeles Master Chorale at the Walt Disney Hall's season opener.
