Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival in Aruba for two full nights of virtuoso performances

Dear jazz fans and good music lovers, you thought that this year would go by without a soul music event. The truth is we are having for the first time this August just for 2 days the first annual Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival, in the weekend of 18th and 19th. The Entertainment Group and Cas di Cultura have accepted the mission to give the residents and guests of Aruba a high quality jazz event with the best national, regional and international line-up possible.

Headlining the event is internationally-acclaimed, Grammy and Emmy-award winning pianist and composer Michel Camilo. The artistry and virtuosity of Michel Camilo bridges the genres of Jazz, Classical, Popular and World music. He is a pianist with a brilliant technique and a composer who flavors his tunes with the spice of Caribbean rhythms and jazz harmonies.

The Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival will pay a tribute to the late tenor saxophonist and composer Michael Brecker and his work. He is an eleventh-time Grammy-winner, and the only person to win both the "Best Jazz Instrumental Performance" and "Best Jazz Instrumental Solo" awards two years in a row. He passed away earlier this year. Delbert Bernabela will form a group to do a tribute to Michael Brecker. Working in this same concept of letting local bands covering their favorite band or artist, Robert Jeandor and his Solo Banda Show will interpret Santana, Antonio Bello Blues will be covering Eric Clapton, and JEMM will do their version of songs by Sting. These groups are very enthusiastic and they are working hard to give you two nights to remember. Randal Corsen (piano) will be also present at the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival 2007. The last time Randal performed here in Aruba, he came with a surprise appearance. We are looking forward to what he will come up with this time. For the first time in years, Aruba will experience great Caribbean and Jazz music.

The Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival is inspired by Paul Acket, the creator of the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Netherlands, and the well-known Aruba Jazz & Latin Music Festival, which took place from 1986 till 2001. Aruba really enjoyed the success of this Festival and would like to have a similar Festival take place once more.
