RIP CARLOS AVERHOFF

ALSO: MORE SCENES FROM JOJAZZ 2016

ENGLISH:     On December 22, 2016, we lost a giant of Cuban Jazz and Timba, saxophonist/flautist Carlos Averhoff.  Born in Matanzas on December 6, 1947, and classically trained, he became part of Irakere and also performed with NG La Banda , Issac Delgado 's group and Emiliano Salvador among others.    He spent his final years in Miami, where he was a Professor of Music at the Florida International University School of Music and Professor of Saxophone at Miami-Dade College.   HIs legacy will live on not only in his recorded music but also in the music of his many students.   Carlos Averhoff Jr. , his son, has also emerged as a saxophonist of distinction. 
ESPAÑOL:    El 22 de diciembre de 2016, perdimos a un gigante de Jazz cubano y Timba, el saxofonista / flautista Carlos Averhoff.

Pasó sus últimos años en Miami, donde era Profesor de Música en la Escuela de Música de la Florida International University y Profesor de Saxofón en el Miami-Dade College. Su legado vivirá no sólo en su música grabada, sino también en la música de sus muchos estudiantes. Carlos Averhoff Jr. , su hijo, también ha emergido como un saxofonista de distinción.

Havana D'Primera Closes 2016 in Miami

Alexander Abreu & Havana D'Primera will close 2016 with two concerts in Miami. They now have their visas and will perform on December 30th at 9:00pm at The Place of Miami . If you haven't made your New Year's Eve plans yet, why not book a table at Havana 1957 - Brickell where you can ring in the New Year with a concert by Alexander and the guys.

Personally I have been watching the official video for "Siempre sí" over and over again. Havana D'Primera always delivers.
