JAZZ IN JULY SERIES CONTINUES AT MAIN LIBRARY WITH LATIN X-POSURE JULY 20

Latin X-Posure heads off the third concert in the Jazz in July series at the Main Library, 800 Vine Street, on Friday, July 20, 7:00 p.m. The band has taken the old sounds of jazz and fused it into a new sound that runs the gamut from salsa, merengue, bolero and other Latin rhythms with a mixture of vocals and instrumentals.

Latin X-Posure was born from the eagerness to create something new. The many years of experience and energy by the 12 band members brings old sounds combined with new rhythms.� The group consists of leader-pianist-composer Patrick Kelly, vocalists Llilian Valdes, Maribel Andrade, Maria Alvarez, and Laura Toscaris; Joe Gaudio on baritone and alto saxophones; Clarence Pawn on trombone, Gary Winters and Brian Schwab on trumpet; Victor Velez on congas; Chris Velez on bongos and campana, Michael Sharte on bass; and Miguel Maldonado on timbales and guiro. Last year the group released its first CD, Donde Estas?

The final concert in the Jazz in July series is Hip-hop Jazz Fusion: The Mike Wade Group on July 27.
