Mexican singer-songwriter Marco Antonio Solis is well into middle age, but he's far from surrendering his status as a heartthrob -- one he's held since he was a teen. Today he delivers pop love songs as well as regional Mexican music for fans who buy tickets to see him in concert, but his 2013 album, Gracias Por Estar Aqui, puts its focus squarely on contemporary romantic ballads. He's a huge concert draw throughout Latin America and regularly tours the arena circuit in the U.S., where his 2013 album hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin albums chart. Solis debuted as a judge on La Voz... Mexico, the Mexican version of the the TV talent show The Voice, in 2013.

The 2014 festival arrives at REDCAT on September 21 with a double bill: the fiercely creative duo of pianist Satoko Fujii and trumpeter Kappa Maki opens for DownBeat’s “Rising Star Drummer” Allison Miller and her high-octane five-piece band BOOM TIC BOOM! Headlining on September 26 is NEA Jazz Master Toshiko Akiyoshi, on piano alongside bassist Paul Gill and drummer Aaron Kimmel. The trio is preceded by the debut of a Los Angeles Jazz Society commission from pianist-composer Cathlene Pineda and L.A.’s first-ever poet laureate Eloise Klein Healy.
