Tampa Jazz Club Presents Cal Tjader Tribute at HCC Ybor City Campus Nov 17, 2013

Tampa Jazz Club and HCC/Ybor Performing Arts Present:

Viva Cal! 

A Tribute to Cal Tjader

Sunday, November 17, 3 PM

Mainstage Theatre, HCC Performing Arts Building, Ybor City

“Viva Cal!” 

Jazz and Latin music blur in “Viva Cal!” the next event presented by the Tampa Jazz Club and HCC’s Visual and Performing Arts Series. The concert takes place on November 17 in the Mainstage Theatre on HCC’s Ybor City campus at 3:00 PM.

Led by Bay Area percussionist Frankie Pineiro, this tribute to the late Cal Tjader features the legendary Kenny Drew Jr. on piano and 19 year old vibraphone phenom Cole Hazlitt.

Born in Puerto Rico Pineiro began playing music over 35 years ago. He is also the director of the Guisando Caliente Latin Jazz Quintet.

Though he travels worldwide performing both jazz and classical music the Bay Area is fortunate to count Kenny Drew Jr. as one of its residents. An outstanding soloist he has also performed with a who’s who of musicians including Stanley Jordan, Stanley Turrentine, Slide Hampton, the Mingus Big Band, Smokey Robinson, Frank Morgan and many others.

Prodigy Cole Hazlitt toured the world with Sonny LaRosa’s band as a pre-teenager. He now studies music at Tarpon Springs High and is a member of the Ruth Eckerd Youth Jazz Band.

Rounding out the sextet are Joe Porter on bass, Hector Mayoral on percussion and John Jenkins on drums.

West Coast vibraphonist Cal Tjader was a pioneer in blending modern jazz sounds with a Latin flavor. After breaking into the music business with Dave Brubeck and George Shearing, Tjader developed his new sound and had a hit in 1965 with “Soul Sauce” a reworking of Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo’s classic “Guachi Guaro.” Though he passed away in 1982 his influences still live on in the music of Carlos Santana and Poncho Sanchez.
