February 14. Lovers of Latin jazz will be swooning hard on Valentine's Day when Chris Washburne and the SYOTOS Band (the outfit's name is an acronym for "see you on the other side") heats up Bard College's Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts. Trombonist Washburne has led the group since 1992, which, at 20 years, has had the longest-running jazz gig in New York. With a lineup that includes star players from the ensembles of Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Ray Barretto, the band fuses Afro-Cuban, funk, jazz, gospel, and contemporary classical styles and has been described as "Tito Puente meets James Brown meets Charles Ives!" (Ana Devere Smith speaks February 15; the American Symphony Orchestra appears February 21 and 22.) 7:30pm. $20. Annandale-on-Hudson. (845) 758-7900; Fishercenter.bard.edu.
