This week on Saturday Jazz Caliente, we'll hear part of a suite written by percussionist Samuel Torres and dedicated to the victims of violence in his native Columbia.  Also,  from composer/arranger/educator Socrates Garcia's project Back Home, a selection in remembrance of three sisters who were assassinated in 1960 for their actions against the Dominican Republic's bloodiest dictator, Rafael Trujillo.
