JazzMN Orchestra Presents: A Tribute to Tito Puente featuring Rey Rivera
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2013 7:30 PM
Please join the JazzMN Orchestra, Minnesota's premier 17-piece classic-to-contemporary jazz ensemble for a Tribute to Tito Puente featuring Rey Rivera.
Tito Puente is often credited as "The King of Latin Music." He was best known for dance-oriented mambo and Latin jazz compositions that helped keep his career going for 50 years. He and his music appear in many films such as The Mambo Kings and Fernando Trueba's Calle 54. He guest starred on several television shows including Sesame Street, The Cosby Show and The Simpsons, and won five Grammy awards for his recordings.
Rey Rivera has performed and recorded with a virtual who's who from the world of Jazz, Latin and R&B music as well as with his own acclaimed ensemble ZAFRA. His diverse experience includes work with such luminaries as Pee Wee Elias of James Brown, Chet Catallo of Sypra Gyra, Jeff Jarvis, Patato, Franke Malabe, Eddie (gua-gua) Rivera, Ramito, Los Condes, Bob Weiner, Bobby Mantello and Miguelito Valdes. A graduate of the Hochstein Music School, Rey also studied at the Eastman Conservatory of Music and took lessons at the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico. Rey received a Music Certificate from the University of Mantanza de Cuba for Folkloric Percussion under the study of Alphonso Dejesus of the Muinequitos de Matanza. He has also toured with off Broadway shows and circuses and continues to do music workshops for children and adults.
