Jazz Fest 2011 Memories
Some of the highlights from last year’s Jazz Fest July 21 – 24, 2011 included the O’Jays, Arturo Sandoval, Dave Koz, Will Downing and Najee, to name a few. The 30th Annual Jazz Fest will take place once more in Winter Park’s Hideaway Park, features live music from local, regional and national acts. This year’s dates are: July 21, 2012 - July 22, 2012.
The 2011 Line Up Featured:
O’Jays: The faces in this legendary band may have changed, but the smooth, soul sounds stay strong to this group’s roots, which date back to the 1960s. The O’Jays originally formed in Canton, Ohio, where all five original members attended high school together. Today, the trio of the O’Jays is known for its classic soul songs. Najee: A native New Yorker and a revolutionary of urban contemporary jazz, Najee began his iconic career playing clarinet, saxophone and flute in his hometown of Queens, New York. Najee’s Grammy nominated, platinum selling debut album, Najee’s Theme, was followed by Day By Day which also achieved platinum status. Tokyo Blue, Just an Illusion and Share My World all attained gold status. Alex Bugnon with special guest Nelson Rangell: Alex Bugnon, a two-time Soul Train Music Award winner, is a jazz pianist and composer from Switzerland. He studied at the Paris Conservatory and the Mozart Academy in Salzburg and started recording in 1989. His debut album, Love Season and his follow-up Head Over Heels reached the pop charts and the R&B Top 40. Joining Bugnon onstage in Winter Park is Nelson Rangell, a Denver-based saxophonist who emerged in the late 1980s. Critics say Rangell is one of the most exciting and diverse contemporary jazz performers. He plays soprano, alto and tenor sax, as well as flute and piccolo. Dotsero: This band is named after a small mountain town in Colorado that means “something unique,” according to Ute Indian legend. Specializing in smooth jazz, this band is noted for being as fun to watch as it is to listen to with its exciting brand of music.
Saturday, July 23: with the O'Jays, Najee, Alex Bugnon and Dotsero
Sunday, July 24: with Dave Koz, Will Downing, Arturo Sandoval Dave Koz: Saxophonist Dave Koz’s career spans 20 years and a dozen albums. Koz, a six-time Grammy nominee, has established himself as one of the most prominent figures in contemporary music. His latest album, Hello Tomorrow, is produced by Grammy winners John Burk and Marcus Miller. Will Downing: Prepare to swoon! According to his website, “women love Will Downing, and men love the women who love him.” Will Downing’s recording career spans two decades, during which the Brooklyn native has secured his place as one of the leaders in romantic, soulful music. Arturo Sandoval: Sandoval is a protégé of the legendary jazz master, Dizzy Gillespie.
