2012 SAN JOSÉ JAZZ FESTIVAL
SUNDAY 8/12/2012

PHOTOS BY TOM EHRLICH © 2012

This completes my report fo the 2012 San José Jazz Festival.  It includes photos of Anthony Blea y Su Charanga, Natalie Cressman & Secret Garden, Diane Reeves, High School All Stars, Terrance Blanchard and Team Bahia (Bay Area All Star Timba band).

Anthony Blea y Su Charanga

Anthony Blea is a classically trained violinist who straddles between playing classical music and Salsa.
This version of his Charanga brought mostly Bay Area heavy hitters together which for my money was one of the best salsa band at the jazz festival this year, with Wil Campa tying for the honors.


Dr. John Calloway flutist, pianist, percussionist,  composer, arranger, band leader and educator.


Cubano Orlando Torriente, one of the best soneros in the bay area.

Master percussionist, band leader and educator Jesús Diaz.  His band is my favorite timba/Cuban salsa band in the Bay Area.


Marco Diaz plays both piano and trumpet and does quite a bit of arranging for many bands.  He plays in many of the best Bay Area salsa bands and also plays Latin Jazz with John Santos.

SAN JOSÉ JAZZ HIGH SCHOOL ALL STARS

NATALIE CRESSMAN & SECRET GARDEN

21 year old Natalie Cressman is the daughter of two musicians - mother Sandy Cressman leads a group that plays Brazlian music and father Jeff Cressman is a trombonist, arrranger and master sound engineer, who is the trombonist in Santana's band.

Natalie is a trombonist, vocalist, composer and band leader.  She and her band mates all study at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City.  I am certain we will all be hearing a lot from Natalie in the future.  Her group was one of my favorites at this years San José Jazz Festival.

DIANNE REEVES

One of the great jazz vocalist on the scene today.


Dianne Reeves


Romero Lubambo, great Brazilian guitarist

TERRANCE BLANCHARD

Terrance Balnchard is one of the premier trumpeters and composers in jazz today.  Besides creating beautiful music with his quintet, he is a great composer of movie sound tracks and has composed many sound tracks for Spike Lee's movies.  All his band memvers are from a youinger generation but they are all great players.  On piano is yet another virtuoso from Cuba, Fabian Almazan.

TEAM BAHIA

Closing out the Festival this year on the salsa stage was Team Bahia, a Bay Area All Star Timba Band.


Colin Douglas. although young and NOT Cuban, he is a master drummer - I consider him the best Cuban dance music drummer in the Bay Area.
