Biography

Henry Brun & the Latin Playerz - Awaken HAVE NO FEAR! Percussionist, Henry Brun is not an especially big guy, but just being around him you can feel his energy, courage and palpable enthusiasm. Brun's approach to life and music has always been the same, urgent and intense. "Spiritual Awakenings", a recording by Henry Brun & the Latin Playerz which was nominated for multiple awards, truly demonstrates why they've thrilled crowds across the country and have been perennial poll winners throughout the Southwest for the better part of twenty years. One of the most impressive things about the Playerz is that they can tackle anything, from inventive arrangements of straight-ahead Jazz Classics to the hippest sounding original compositions!

Henry Brun has been called many things, some of which are unfit to print here. But most of all, he gets the first call to play for almost every major recording session and international touring artist that comes through San Antonio and the Southwest. "Mr. Ritmo", as he is known to many, has built his credentials and musical reputation by working hard, playing hard and by being completely committed to musical integrity, excellence and creativity. On that, he's as solid as the calluses on his hard hitting hands!

Henry Brun isn't afraid of anything - most of all, he isn't afraid of taking musical chances. And that's what he's done on "Spiritual Awakenings". After all, experimentation, innovation and improvisation are the creative cornerstones of Jazz! There is absolutely no doubt that this musical adventure could only have come from a transplanted Puerto Rican in San Antonio, Texas! Henry Brun & the Latin Playerz will inspire you to "awaken" your musical senses!
