BWW Review: SAN DIEGO SYMPHONY: LATIN JAZZ MASTERS at San Diego Embarcadero MarinaBWW Review: SAN DIEGO SYMPHONY: LATIN JAZZ MASTERS at San Diego Embarcadero Marina
by Ron Bierman - Aug 13, 2017

Latin jazz inspired the latest concert in the San Diego Symphony's Bayside Summer Nights series. Gilbert Castellanos, the creative force behind the Symphony's jazz concerts, assembled an all-star Latin band for a tribute to past masters such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and Mongo Santamaria. As usual, Castellanos's selection of talent from a huge network of jazz-world friends emphasized skill as much as national name-recognition. The band's lineup ran the gamut from baritone sax player Jean-Paul Balmat, perhaps more widely known outside of San Diego as a jazz educator, to three-time Grammy Award winner, pianist Oscar Hernandez.

BWW Review: DR. JOHN IN SAN DIEGO at Embarcadero MarinaBWW Review: DR. JOHN IN SAN DIEGO at Embarcadero Marina
by Ron Bierman - Jul 31, 2017

A worse-for-wear Dr. John walked slowly to the piano with the help of two canes. He was no quicker while leaving the stage at the end of the set. But for over an hour in between, he and his sextet kept up an infectious funky beat, and his voice and piano playing erased half a century of his 76 years. Listeners felt an irresistible urge to tap feet, sway rhythmically, and sometimes laugh at the lyrics of songs such as 'How Come My Dog Don't Bark (When You Come 'Round)?' sung in Dr. John's inimitable raspy growl. Contrary to the title of his biggest hit, it was 'Right Place Right Time.' (more...)
