Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts partners with the historic venue Casa Feliz to present a series of concerts "Music at the Casa"! Please note this show is being held at Casa Feliz, in conjunction with Blue Bamboo.

Tonight's performance includes Dimas Sánchez- drums/percussion, Mariano Morales- piano, Marco Bojorquez- bass, and Jorge Malave - sax.

Dimas Sánchez, an accomplished drummer and percussionist hailing from Puerto Rico, currently calls Orlando, FL home. His musical journey has been shaped by the guidance of seasoned mentors such as Tony Sánchez, Keith Copeland, Ignacio Berroa, Ángel “Cachete” Maldonado, and others. In the 80s, he immersed himself in the rich tapestry of Afro-Puerto Rican folklore under the tutelage of Jesús Cepeda, Petra Cepeda, and Don Rafael Cepeda.

Throughout his illustrious career, Dimas has collaborated with a diverse spectrum of musicians and groups, including the Xavier Cougat Orchestra, Taller de Jazz Don Pedro, David Sánchez, Giovanni Hidalgo, Eddie “GuaGua” Rivera, Milly Puente, Gabriel Hernandez, Nestor Torres, Chuchito Valdes, and many more. His musical repertoire extends to playing and producing Latin Jazz recordings with Eddie “GuaGua” Rivera's “Opus Mundi,” his own group “Fusion Beat,” and his latest endeavor, the “Afro Latin Jazz Project.”

Noteworthy festival appearances dot Dimas's career, with highlights including Mundo Latino in Paris (Tito Puente Jr), SunFest in West Palm Beach, Clearwater Jazz Festival (David Sánchez) , San Francisco Black and White Ball (Tito Puente Jr), The Mastercard Jazz Festival in San Juan (David Sánchez) , Jacksonville Jazz Festival (with David Sánchez), Taste of 4th Ave in Birmingham, Alabama (with David Sánchez), and Toros y Salsa in Dax, France (Iba a Se). With his own groups, he has graced stages at Ventana al Jazz Orlando, Pensacola Jazz Festival, Tallahassee Jazz Festival, Swan City Jazz Festival, Orange County’s Mayor Jazz in the Park, and the Timucua Arts World Music Weekends.

Dimas is not only a performer but also a dedicated educator, actively participating in percussion clinics and master classes. His notable involvement in the "Contemporary Drums and Percussion Summer Camp" at the University of Central Florida saw him share the stage with luminaries like Horacio “El Negro” Hernández and Alex Acuña. His commitment to teaching led him to clinics at Punto Fijo, Centro de Bellas Artes, alongside Jesús Cepeda, and a Latin percussion clinic with drummer Marty Morell at the “Timucua Arts Foundation.” Additionally, he conducted a concert/master class for the Al Downing Tampa Jazz Association, a master class for the “Diablo Marino Group” in Tokyo, Japan in 2019, and a percussion workshop at the renowned Havana Amadeo Roldan Conservatory. Notably, Dimas has also authored a book titled “Afro Puerto Rican Rhythms.”

Orilla is a highly creative musical duo comprised of two accomplished musicians from diverse backgrounds: Catalan-Spanish singer/multi-instrumentalist Ona Kirei and Colombian-American bassist Alejandro Arenas. Their musical philosophy is rooted within the minimalistic instrumentation of voice and bass, allowing great freedom of expression and spontaneity. Their music touches on a wide variety of styles, always including tight arrangements and spontaneous improvisation. Like the meaning of the Spanish word "orilla" (where the ocean meets the sand), the combination of these two accomplished musicians produces a rich musical ecosystem.

International Brazilian music star Daniela Soledade and virtuoso guitarist Nate Najar transport you to tropical Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with an intimate evening of Bossa Nova music.

Rio de Janeiro native Daniela Soledade is a rising star among legends in the Brazilian music scene. An heir to the throne of Bossa Nova, Soledade is highly acclaimed for her poignantly expressive vocal style and hyper-intimate aesthetic. Drawing from an amalgamation of authentic bossa nova, samba, MPB, and American Popular Song, Soledade is the new sound of Bossa Nova.

Nate Najar is one of this decade’s finest modern jazz guitarists. He is a player who uses a distinctive technique to convey his artistic prowess, and the result is music that is swinging, emotional, and inventive. Rick Andersen of the All Music Guide called Nate "one of the most consistently interesting and stylish young guitarists on the jazz scene…".

Music at the Casa - Blue Bamboo presents the Joe Fritz Trio

 —  —

Casa Feliz, 656 N. Park Ave., Winter Park FL

Admission is free. Due to limited seating, reservations are required. Please contact Melody Cortez for reservations:

Email: melodycortez@live.com Phone: 407-636-9951

Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts partners with the historic venue Casa Feliz to present a series of concerts "Music at the Casa"! Please note this show is being held at Casa Feliz, in conjunction with Blue Bamboo.

Today's performance features Joe Fritz on clarinet, Steve Luciano on guitar and Doug Mathews on bass.

Hungarian clarinetist Joe Fritz just arrived in the USA in March 2024. In 2012 he was ranked among the top 30 jazz clarinetists in the world. His discography includes 11 solo albums as a leader and 54 as a sideman.

His trio from Orlando plays 50's and 60's jazz in the style of Stan Getz, Paul Desmond, Jimmy Giuffre and other great west coast jazz players.

Joe has a long past of his own in Hungarian jazz. He made his first record almost 20 years ago followed by a dozen more. He chose the clarinet under the influence of Benny Goodman. The clarinet is the richest tone-color among all the instruments, especially in the hand of such an artist who is a fan of the "rehabilitation” of this instrument. Joe is a master of style. All of his solos, short or long, are very carefully composed. He plays pleasant swing music, enjoyable for everybody, of the best-known American standards as well as popular Hungarian melodies or his own compositions.

Joe isn’t only a fine musician but a researcher of clarinet playing and has written about the history of the instrument in articles and record reviews for several music magazines. His foreign tours, long and short stayings abroad, helped the maturation of his style and were beneficent for his career. He spent one and a half years in America, one in Australia, and had jobs in jazz clubs which gave him experience and knowledge in music and language. He also worked with top jazz musicians all around the World, including Gyorgy Vukan, George Grosman, Travis Jenkins, Allan Vache, and Jeff Usher to name a few.

Terri Binion is Orlando Americana Royalty. She is an authentic Southern singer-songwriter and guitarist, whose unflinchingly honest stories sung in her clear voice can just about pierce your heart.

Singer-songwriter, visual artist, and author Jim White wrote of a track on her 2002 album "Fool": "It was a discreet portrait of a poor lost soul, a destitute southern woman, an archetype. By the end I was in tears. It was that true, that beautiful, that perfectly wrought. Just Terri and an acoustic guitar. Two songs in and it was clear, […] Terri was a magic person - someone who not only followed her own compass, but who was guided by stars not visible to the average eye."
