Official 2007 KUVO Press Release
Denver - Denver Public Radio KUVO's Ritmo Latino Project has announced the 2007 re-issue of the series of four programs for public radio, "Caliente! Latin Jazz with Eddie Palmieri." The programs, recorded in Denver and New York, originally aired nationally and in Puerto Rico during Hispanic Heritage Month in 2006, covering over 160 markets. The marketing and distribution for this re-release is through the WFMT Radio Network, Chicago.
"Working with WFMT is the next logical step for the Caliente! programming concept. Their network of over 700 stations and their presence in Canada, the Caribbean and the European Union will provide unprecedented access internationally as well as in the US." The programs are distributed without charge to any public radio station, with marketing and distribution support coming from the MetLife Foundation. The original grant for the production of the series was provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Inspired by such National Public Radio programs as "Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland" and "Billy Taylor's Jazz from Kennedy Center," each of the four programs features nine-time Grammy Award winner Eddie Palmieri, his rhythm section, a jazz soloist and a special guest. The hour-long programs of music and conversation between Palmieri and his guests, top names in the world of jazz, Latin jazz and world music, give the listeners insights into jazz and Latin jazz.
Pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Eddie Palmieri, who celebrated his 50th year as a professional musician in 2005, was the recipient of a 2006 Grammy in the Latin Jazz category for his 2005 release "Listen Here!," his first recording to include jazz standards. Although he has been heard often on public radio, this series is Palmieri's first nationally distributed programming bearing his own name.
KUVO Program Director/Ritmo Latino Executive Producer Carlos Lando, says "The series will showcase the past and current traditions of Latin jazz, a musical style that has been growing steadily in public awareness over the past decade. One indication of the rise of Latin jazz is the fact that "Listen Here!" climbed in late 2005 to number one album on the national jazz charts - not just Latin jazz, but all of jazz. Mr. Palmieri's keen interest in musical and cultural history will help to show the evolution of this style, originated in the U.S. in the 1940's by Cubans Mario Bauza, Chano Pozo and BeBop jazz pioneer Dizzy Gillespie, to its current stars such as saxophonist David Sanchez, pianists Chick Corea, Danilo Perez, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and others." The series will also welcome such mainstream jazz artists who have worked in the Latin jazz vein, including trombonist Conrad Herwig, trumpeter Brian Lynch, vibraphonist Joe Locke and others.
Executive producer Lando's production team includes veteran National Public Radio producer Alfredo Cruz of Southern California, KUVO engineers Mike Pappas and Justin Peacock, New York sound engineer Duke Markos, KUVO music director and historical consultant Arturo Gomez. Tina Cartagena serves as marketing and website director and Ritmo Latino project manager Lou McElroy can be reached at 303-277-1371. The official Caliente! website is at www.calientelatinjazz.org.
