Jorge Calderón-Solo Performance

  • Underground Exchange 1016 West Ojai Avenue Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

Grammy-winning musician, vocalist, songwriter and producer Jorge Calderon will grace the Underground Stage in a solo performance on Saturday, July 21st. Jorge has been an integral part of the Southern California music scene since he first came to Los Angeles in 1969. Early on in L.A., Calderon met producer Keith Olsen, who at the time was working out of Sound City with Curt Boettcher (The Association, The Beach Boys), and who introduced Calderon to Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham. Around that time, Calderon also met Warren Zevon, and through him, Jackson Browne. He decided to play and tour with Zevon and others, rather than making another album and continuing on the singer-songwriter path. In the decades since his last solo release—in addition to his collaborations with Zevon and Browne—Calderon has been heard on scores of classic albums, contributing bass, guitar, and vocals. He was a founding member of David Lindley’s band El Rayo-X, and has also toured the world playing with Ry Cooder, Leonard Cohen, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and J.D. Souther. Calderon’s musical and personal journey to Los Angeles began more than 3,300 miles away in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He grew up on Latin music from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and calypso from other islands, but when he first heard rock ‘n roll—he fell in love. Bernie Larsen, another member of David Lindley's El Rayo-X, will open the show and who knows, maybe both musicians will enlighten the audience with songs together. The show beings at 7:30, and there is a $20-$25 suggested donation at the door.
