Latin sounds fill the air with the Russ Hewitt Band at the Allen Public Library. An award-winning guitarist, Russ Hewitt’s recordings Bajo esol, Alma Vieja and Cielo Nocturno resulted in five Top 40 Smooth Jazz singles. Combining lightning guitar runs with unique Flamenco, Brazilian and Rumba rhythms will guarantee an electrifying concert. Flamenco dancer Julia Alcatana graces the stage with spectacular selections. Julia is founder of the Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival. Russ Hewitt explains, "My style is not true Flamenco, jazz, Latin, Cuban or Brazilian but a fusion of them all, sometimes combined simultaneously without regard to the rules that govern each genre. A Latin/rumba base exists in all my songs but each with a distinctive movement." Holding a performance degree in classical guitar from University of North Texas, Russ is a voter for the Grammy and Latin Grammy. His hit ‘Bajo el Sol’ was included on the ballot for the 52nd Grammy Awards. A recipient of five Telly Awards, Russ composed music for the upcoming feature film “Thirst: Mission Liberia” that has already won a Silver Telly in the Spiritual – Faith category and a Bronze Telly in the Documentary category. Composing multiple soundtracks and songs for television shows, Russ’s latest magnum opus is the DVD companion to the New York Times bestseller ‘The Harbinger Decoded’ by Jonathan Cahn. The band is comprised of Bob Parr on bass, Wana Hong on violin, Efren Guzman on drums, and Miguel Antonio on guitar, and Jose Rossy on percussion. #latinjazz #onstageAPL #music LINKS ========================== For more information on Library events: http://www.allenlibrary.org Your City, Your News http://www.AllenNews.org Watch ACTV online 24/7 http://www.AllenTV.org

Tony Succar brings folkloric Afro Peruvian rhythms such as Landó & Festejo to Miami. His band "Mixtura" is made of musicians from Cuba, Venezuela, Peru, Aruba and more. The blend of musical cultures is what creates a distinct sound in performing this traditional music. "Toro Mata" and "Ritmo, Color y Sabor" are anthems in Afro-Peruvian repertoire, inspired by and in tribute to the great Peruvian composers and musicians Caitro Soto, Carlos Rincon, Moises Vargas, Eva Ayllon and Tito Manrique. Afro-Peruvian music, or Música negra, is a type of Latin American music first developed by black slaves from West Africa in South America, and especially in Peru. The genre is a mix of West African and Spanish music. The cajón, played by Tony, is the most widely used Afro-Peruvian musical instrument since the late 18th century. Slaves of west and central Africanorigin in the Americas are considered to be the source of the cajón drum. Born into a family of talented musicians in Lima, Peru on May 18, 1986, Tony Succar’s very DNA must be imbued with cadence and rhythm. The Succar family moved to Miami, Florida when Tony was just two; at the ripe old age of 13, Tony’s own music career began. He says, “I was privileged to be brought up in a family of musicians: I couldn’t be more grateful.” Succar’s music education began on piano then segued to percussion. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Jazz Performance from Florida International University in 2008 and his Master’s degree in 2010. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

All rights reserved ABOUT THE EVENT: Candido Camero, Alfredo "Chocolate" Armenteros and Jimmy Bosch gathered with the Latin Jazz All Stars for a special 80th birthday celebration for legendary Latin jazz composer, arranger and saxophonist Ray Santos on Monday, May 18, 2009 at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center. The ensemble group will perform sizzling Santos compositions such as "Sunny Ray," "Azulito" and "3-D Mambo," set behind the backdrop of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline in honor of one the most important figures in Latin music. Known as "El Maestro" of the mambo sound, for the past 50 years Santos has played, recorded, composed and arranged for the premiere orchestras in Latin music including Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez, Mario Bauza and Machito, to name a few. Santos' music captures what he calls "the incessant rhythmic drive of the Afro-Cuban sound fused with the power and sonority of Big Band Jazz." Mr. Santos is widely recognized for composing and arranging music for Grammy Award-winning projects by musical giants including Tito Puente, Eddie Palmeri and Paquito D'Rivera. In 1992, Santos received critical acclaim for his arrangements for The Mambo Kings movie soundtrack, including the Oscar-nominated song, "Beautiful Maria of My Soul." In the same year, Santos collaborated with Linda Ronstadt on "Frenesi," a tour-de force production that earned the Grammy Award for Best Tropical Latin Album of the Year. In 1998 he was invited to be a special guest conductor for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at the landmark concert "Con Alma/Jazz with a Latin Tinge." A New York native and graduate of The Julliard School, Santos is one of the leading authorities on Afro-Caribbean music and is frequently interviewed on radio, television and film, including "Cachao: Uno Más" the upcoming documentary on the life of great Cuban musician Israel "Cachao" López. He has been an esteemed music educator at the City College of New York for nearly 25 years and is frequently invited to lecture at colleges and universities throughout the U.S. including Dartmouth College, Lehman College, The New England Conservatory of Music and has served as artist-in-residence at the SUNY Purchase College School of the Arts, Conservatory of Music. Among Santos' numerous awards are the Chico O'Farrill Lifetime Achievement Award and the Bobby Capo Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2003, Santos was inducted into the International Latin Music Hall of Fame. For more information about Ray Santos or for media inquiries, please visit www.maestroraysantos.com.
