Tom Ehrlich - 2014 San Jose Jazz Fest Saturday

SAN JOSÉ JAZZ FESTIVAL SATURDAY NIGHT

AUGUST 9, 2014 -- © PHOTOS BY TOM EHRLICH 2014

Second installment of my report on this years festival.  My report for Saturday includes: the Soul Rebels from New Orleans, Chappottín y Sus Estrellas, Orchesta Con Sabor (lead by Calixto Oviedo), and Jerry González and the Fort Apache Band.

SOUL REBELS

These young guys from New Orleans playing modern versions of traditional NO music included two drummers (one played a timbale set and a bass drum), two trumpets, two trombones, a sax and a tuba.  They are defintiely a party band.

CHAPPOTTÍN Y SUS ESTRELLAS

This band is one of the premier son bands in the world and has been in existance since the 1940s started by the legendary Arseño Rodrîguez. They played twice at the festival once on the main stage and once on the salsa stage.  This ws part of their first US tour.

ORQUESTA CON SABOR

This group is lead by Calixto Oviedo, with his wife Lily Oviedo providing the vocals.  I have known Calixto for quite some time, but this was the first time I got to meet and see Lily perform.  She's an incredible talent with great stage presence and strong voice.  This version of the band included Bay Area standouts Carlos Caro, Marco Diaz, George Balmaseda, El Niche Romero and Roberto Morris and from LA the talented bassist Yosmel Montejo.  This strong timba group created a lot of excitement.  Most of the members of this band are alumni of top Cuban timba bands.

JERRY GONZÁLEZ AND THE FORT APACHE BAND

The Fort Apache Band has been in existence since around 1980 which has always included top flight Afro-Caribbean and jazz musicians creating their unique form of Afro-Caribbean jazz.  This band has a special place in my heart since for many years they have been one of my favorite bands and photographing them at the San Jose Jazz Festival in 1995 started me on my path to becoming a jazz/Afro-Caribbean music photographer.

At the festival, the band consisted of Jerry Gonzalez on congas and trumpet, Larry Willis on piano, Joe Ford on sax, Alex Blake on bass and Jeff Tain Watts on the drum set.  Everyone one of these kats are virtuosos and have played with many top jazz bands.

Fort Apache played twice and I photographed both performances.  Firts performance was in the California Theatre.
