Tom Ehrlich - 2014-2 with Ernesto Oviedo

ERNESTO OVIEDO WITH JOHN SANTOS SEXTET AND SPECIAL GUESTS

SAN FRANCISCO JAZZ CENTER

FEBRUARY 8, 2014

PHOTOS BY TOM EHRLICH © 2014

The Oviedo family is one of the royal families in Cuban music. Most of us know of Isaac Oviedo, a legendary tresero and composer and Papi Oviedo tresero who played with the Buena Vista Social Club.  BUT Isaac's son and Papi's brother, Ernesto Oviedo is not well known outside of Cuba.  

Fortunately for those of us who live in the Bay Area, the great percussionist, band leader, composer and educator of everything musica Afro-Caribbeaño, invited Ernesto Oviedo to the Bay Area twice.  His latest visit was to perform at the new world class San Francisco Jazz Center for a CD release celebration. This CD was recorded during his first visit to the Bay Area, produced by John Santos and his record label Machete Records and was Ernesto's first CD with him as the featured artist. As John says, Ernesto is 78 years young and he is one of the pre-eminent boleristas in the world today.

I have seen him perform classic boleros from all over Latin America a few times now and every time he overwhelms audiences with his smooth beautiful emotion drenced voice. Quoting Mr. Santos, "his Johnny Hartman-esque sound and range raises eyebrows and melts hearts".  For those of you who do not know the late Johnny Hartman, he is one of the all time great American jazz singers. For me he is one of the best if not the best bolero/ballad singers I have ever heard, moving many to tears when he performs.

Ernesto's new CD is called Siempre Clásico and can be purchased on line at www.ernestooviedo.com.

What follows are photos from Ernesto's sold out performance on February 8, 2014.
