Summer Sizzlers 2016
Tucson Latin Jazz Nonet Sunday, August 21, 2016 2:00 p.m. in the Church In the early 1990’s The Tucson Jazz Society sponsored its own Tucson Jazz Orchestra and The Tucson Latin Jazz Orchestra which was quite successful for a few years. However, the size of the group and the departure of Luis Torres in 1997 made the continuation of the orchestra difficult.
In 2014 Amilcar Guevara and Homero Cerón thought of starting a group that would have some of the same elements of the TLJO back in the 90’s but with less players hence the birth of the Tucson Latin Jazz Nonet. The group does mainly Afro-cuban music with a few Puerto Rican and South-eastern Mexican influenced numbers. It is all-instrumental and improvised solos are a main staple.
