"Brownsville Latin jazz fest tunes up for another year"

Collaboration is the star of the 15th annual Brownsville Latin Jazz Festival, which kicks off Wednesday with a UTB-TSC Performing Arts Center concert by internationally acclaimed jazz singer and pianist Carol Welsman, whose performance also marks the second event of the 2011-12 UTB Signature Series.
Welsman’s Brownsville appearance is the result of the Arts Center’s collaboration with the nonprofit Brownsville Society for the Performing Arts, which produces the jazz festival each year. The evening officially kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with the fruits of another collaboration: "Tiempo de Danzón," an exhibition of photographs by Cristina Kahlo, great-niece of legendary artist Frida Kahlo, that chronicles Afro-Cuban influenced Latin dance styles of Mexico City’s historic dancehalls.

Wednesday night’s attendees are invited to meet and chat with Kahlo, the Jazz Festival’s guest of honor, whose collection will travel to different venues during the festival. At 7 p.m. on Thursday, the second night of the festival, Brownsville Living will host Kahlo and her photos upstairs at the historic Fernandez Building at East 12th and Adams. A free outdoor jazz concert, a repeat from last year’s festival, starts at 8 p.m. on Adams Street and ends sometime before midnight. The UTB One O’Clock Jazz Band opens the show, which will also include Clay Moore and the Frontera Jazz Quartet in a tribute to Chick Corea. On Friday, Shenanigan’s Irish Pub, 2451 Pablo Kisel Blvd., will host another free outdoor concert, which kicks off with Cuban piano virtuoso and Grammy nominee Chuchito Valdés and follows with the Cuban group Guajíro Catorce.
Ramirez said Saturday’s concert, "Night at the Copa Reunion with Henry Brun" at Jacob Brown Auditorium, is likely to be the festival’s high-water mark. San Antonio-based, Grammy-winning percussionist Brun and his band, the Latin Playerz, will host a reunion of festival veterans, including "Master of the Tumbadoras" Chembo Corniel, José Dávila on trombone, vocalist Frankie Vasquez of the Tito Puente Orchestra (the late Tito Puente appeared at the first Brownsville Latin Jazz Festival) and guest appearances by Rosalía de Cuba and Chuchito Valdés.
"The show that I expect to blow out everything else is really going to be Henry Brun at Jacob Brown," Ramirez said.

"It’s going to be really cool because you’ll see the jazz, Latin jazz and salsa all in one show," he said. "It’s going to raise the roof. That’s for sure."
Sunday will close out the festival with a free outdoor "grand reunion jam" at the Capitol Theater, East 11th and Levee, from 2 to 10 p.m. The lineup includes the UTBA Salsa Band, UTB’s Marimbalacrán marimba ensemble, the SPI Steel Pan Band, Rio Grande Valley jazz veteran Rene Sandoval with bluesman Emilio Crixell, the Brownsville Samba School, The Brew, international salsa dance champions, and Valley salsa group Aché backing Rosalia de Cuba. - By STEVE CLARK/The Brownsville Herald

"Latin Jazz Festival begins Feel the rhythm this weekend in Brownsville"

Latin Jazz Festival begins
Feel the rhythm this weekend in Brownsville
By Leslie Williams-Dennis

Get your dancing shoes ready.

Those looking for an all-out celebration will not have to go far this week, the 11th annual Brownsville Latin Jazz Festival starts tonight.

Produced by the Brownsville Society for the Performing Arts, the event, which began in 1997, has grown into a four-day celebration of dancing, food, entertainment, and artwork.

“One of our biggest accomplishments is that we’ve helped shed most everybody’s inhibitions about dancing,” said George Ramirez, the society’s president. “I’m up on stage looking down on the street and it’s just like this big mass of dancers as far as you can see. It’s just incredible.”

“This is the only jazz festival in the whole Rio Grande Valley,” added Ramirez. “Every body loves it of all ages, little viejitos, they’re dancing to music that they use to dance to when they were young — mambos and rumbas and things. It’s gotten more diversified and there’s a demand for everything now.”

Kicking off this year’s festivities is a free Thursday night celebration at Gazpacho’s restaurant in Brownsville featuring performances by four local Jazz groups as well as a display of artwork. The event, designed to give local musicians and artists an opportunity to showcase their work, is expected to attract an audience of more than 1,000 people.

On Friday night, the tables turn to Jacob Brown Auditorium in Brownsville where the band, Rosalia de Cuba will perform an array of Latin Jazz and traditional Cuban music featuring Son, Guaracha, Bolero, Danzón, and other types of international rhythms. The performance will coincide with an evening of salsa dancing performances from dance groups from Mexico, San Antonio, Corpus Christi and Laredo. There will also be a local competition where amateur dancers pair up with professional dancers from the group, Sabor Vallero.

The festivities continue on Saturday night, with a performance from Plena Libre, a 14-piece orchestra from Puerto Rico as well as the local music group, The Brew. In the second round of the Salsa dancing competition, participants will be judged on such criteria as visual presentation, showmanship, couple interaction, execution of choreography, and audience projection and response.

While all of the events at the festival draw large crowds, the most popular event is the Capitol Theatre Street Party on Sunday. Throughout the day, nine groups will perform including the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College jazz bands and Latin jazz ensembles as well as the Los Angeles-based group, Ricardo Lemvo y Makina Loca.

Although the events are fun to attend, the sole purpose of the festival is to bring attention to the organization’s efforts to revitalize downtown Brownsville, said Ramirez, with the Capitol Theatre being the nucleus of the venture. In all, 16 to 18 acts will perform at the festival, including 100 musicians and 30 dancers on Sunday night alone. Many of the acts will be performed on a new city-owned mobile stage that is 40 feet wide and 12 feet deep and includes a many types of sound and lighting equipment. Throughout the four-day festival, he added, an estimated three to six thousand visitors will attend the festivities.

“One of our biggest accomplishments is that we’ve helped shed most everybody’s inhibitions about dancing,” Ramirez said. “I’m up on stage looking down on the street and it’s just like this big mass of dancers as far as you can see. It’s just incredible.”

The festival draws huge crowds, Ramirez pointed out, especially Latin Dance night, the number one dance event of the year in the Rio Grande Valley. The entire event carries a budget of around $80,000, and was financed through local sponsors as well as a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts and the Texas Commission for the Arts. Although the organization is hoping to simply break even with the venture, his main focus continues to be providing an outlet and a living for performers.

“There are tons of music festivals but we’ve gone out of our way to maintain this a Jazz festival and especially a Latin Jazz festival,” Ramirez said. “These are world-class entertainers that we bring. Every year it gets a little bit bigger.” - Brownsville Herald

"Eine karibische Nacht beim Rückl in Bürmoos"

Alois Fuchs. Dem ausklingenden Sommer noch einmal tropische Atmosphäre abgewinnen, war das Ziel bei der Open Air Veranstaltung in Rückl`s Wia z`haus in Bürmoos/Zehmemoos am 25. August. Das cubanische “Temperamentzäpfchen” ROSALIA de CUBA mit ihrer Band spielte cubanische und südamerikanische Musik, und die vom Feinsten.
Nur “Karibikfieber” wollte am Anfang nicht so recht aufkommen, nun ja, das Publikum kam ja schließlich vom 48. Nördlichen Breitengrad und es bedurfte zahlreicher Latino-Stücke um die Temperaturen und das Temperament steigen zu lassen. Den Aufforderungen Rosalias, mit erotischen Verrenkungen verbunden, konnten schließlich die wenigsten widerstehen und bald war auf der Bühne kein Platz mehr für die Sängerin. Diese wurde von den zahlreichen Tänzerinnen und Tänzern aus dem Publikum mit Salza, Merenge und Manbo zum Viebrieren gebracht. Auf alle Fälle ein musikalisches Erlebnis der Extraklasse mit Seltenheitswert in weiter Umgebung.
To give the ending summer tropical atmosphere was the purpose of the open air event on August 25th at Rückl’s Wia z’haus in Bürmoos/Zehmemoos. The Cuban singer Rosalia de Cuba and band showed temperament and vivacity by playing Cuban and South-American music in an excellent way. Only the audience needed some time to get into the “tropical fever”. Maybe because they came from the northern hemisphere. They needed a lot of Latin music to high up temperature and temperament. But hardly anyone could resist Rosalia’s encouragement, mixed with erotic gestures and soon there was no room left on stage for Rosalia. A large number of dancers out of the audience made the stage vibrate by dancing salsa, merenge and mambo. It was in fact a first-rate event with scarcity value round Bürmoos. - Dorf Zeitung .Karl Traintinger
