"The Motherland of Jazz"

Recording Page


Hello all,
Due to hurricane Rita and other conflicting interests, the event planned at the American Airlines Arena was rescheduled and never materialized. Miami-Dade College, The Kiwanis of Little Havana, WPBS, WLRN, Arturo Sandoval, Negroni's Trio, The Fuego Caliente Band, Alfredo Oliva and Miami Symphonic Services, Dana Paul, Peter Graves and the Jaco Pastorious Word of Mouth Revisited Big Band, The American Federation of Musicians, and many other existing and new partners and artists worked hard to put the ecent together but were unable to make the event happen. Other events did take place throughout the community including a benefit concert at the University of Miami where professor Calle participated.
