The comparison is inevitable. On a passionate mission to nurture the musical legacy left by Puente Sr., Latin jazz Mambo king Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, and his music.

“My father is a great inspiration for why I perform. It’s a wonderful feeling and people remember this. He is the only and true influence for why I do what I do.”– Tito Puente, Jr.

Upcoming Summer 2013 Arts Garage Performances

Performing together for over 30 years, Nakasian and O’Brien have entertained audiences all around the world as featured artists. Pianist O’Brien brings spirited tempos and seasoned pure style as he sets the standard from ballads to bebop. Featuring vocals by Nakasian who evokes Fitzgerald and Vaughan, and their 19-year-old daughter, jazz singing sensation Veronica O’Brien.

“Vocal virtuosity…broad range of material that showed [Nakasian’s] assurance on easygoing ballads, soft, Brazilian scat singing, and punchy pep songs.” – The New York Times

Blues for the 21st century, featuring Longineu Parsons and Ted Shumate, that will take you from Louis Armstrong to Howlin’ Wolf to Miles Davis to Jimi Hendrix and beyond. Parsons has been hailed by critics internationally as one of the world’s finest trumpet players. He also performs on recorder, flute, percussion and is a vocalist. Acclaimed worldwide, guitarist Ted Shumate has performed and recorded with some of the most famous musicians in the history of jazz and blues.

“Professional, classy, smooth, sophisticated and urbane.”Jazz & Blues Florida Magazine

Friday, August 23, 2013: Jazz Project, 7:30 PM
An enthusiastic and charismatic performer who is also subtle and refined, Jantzen is on her way to becoming a major name in the overlapping worlds of jazz, cabaret and classic American pop music. She has the rare ability to reinterpret standards and make vintage songs sound fresh, new and topical. Her warm voice and swinging style, combined with a large repertoire, result in consistently memorable performances. She is never shy about embracing melodies and lyrics from the Great American Songbook, bringing out the hidden beauty in both, but her renditions are never predictable.
“Her voice is as rich and honest as you could ever hope for. Driving alone on a dark highway, that’s the voice I’d want to hear.” –Wayne Downing

Linda Witsell continues her traditions of communing and jamming on straight-ahead jazz and contemporary styles. Linda is something of an inconspicuous insurgent in the regional jazz kingdom. Her adeptness on flute is sweet and particularly outspoken. She’s got big, healthy, highly individual ideas on flute, and about how to push jazz beyond its own boundaries.

7/19-8/11, Wed-Fri, 7:30pm | Sat, 2pm | Sun, 7pm

Featuring 24 of Garland’s greatest hits, including “Get Happy,” “That’s Entertainment,” “The Trolley Song,” and of course, “Over the Rainbow.”  An unforgettable musical portrait of a child actor turned Hollywood star who captivated a nation with her spectacular talent and tumultuous life.  “My history of my life is in my songs.“– Judy Garland
