Jon Cleary, the Tres and New Orleans

There are two quintessential Cuban instruments.

The drums, of course. Africa.

And the tres. From Andalusia. Moorish Spain…also Africa.

New Orleans piano “professor” and lover of Cuban music Jon Clear shows how the tres laid down the foundation for Cuban piano which laid down the foundation for the New Orleans sound.

This is part of Jon’s WONDERFUL live stream series.

A secret New Orleans/Cuba connection

A lot of people talk about the connections between New Orleans and Cuba.

They are deep and real.

Havana actually ran New Orleans when the place was owned by the Spanish 1762 to 1803 and built big parts of the “French” Quarter.)

Anyway, the history is undeniable and so are the “look and feel” similarities of the two places (and they are even stronger in Santiago de Cuba on the islands eastern Haitian-facing side.)

But the devil is in the details.

What’s the modern MUSICAL link?

Jon Cleary shares a little known connection between Professor Longhair and Perez Prado.

“Fes” is Professor Longhair and Professor Longhair is one of a small handful of innovators who can be credited with laying down the roots of rock and roll and funk for that matter.

Jane Bunnett & Maqueque All-Stars

Big news: You can catch Jane and her band in an intimate setting at the Falcon on the Hudson Valley this Sunday, September 15, 2019.

Jane Bunnett and and her husband Larry Kramer have provided the gateway to the larger world for countless young Cuban musicians.

Being from Canada helps. Unlike those of us from the “Land of the No-So-Free”, they’ve been able to travel back and forth to Cuba providing support to the musicians there uninterrupted for over 25 years.

This is Jane’s latest band that includes at least two super stars from the new generation: Daymé Arocena, vocals and Yissy García, drums and super stars to be, some of whom received their introduction to the jazz idiom from Jane: Melvis Santa, vocals & percussion; Mary Paz, congas & vocals. Danae Olana, piano: and Tailin Marrero, acoustic & electric bass.

Big news: You can catch Jane and her band in an intimate setting at the Falcon on the Hudson Valley this Sunday, September 15, 2019.

Other locations on their 2019 Northeast US tour

See them while you can. The jackasses in Washington are making it brutally difficult for Cuban musicians to tour in the US.

The kids from ENA

ENA is Cuba’s secondary school conservatory.

Thanks to the dedication of Camilo Moriera, a new generation of Cuban musicians is being introduced to jazz.

The tune arranged and conducted by Camilo is a Cuban classic “Son de la Loma.” It translates “They’re from the hills”

Makes me homesick.

We’ve featured Camilo’s work on these pages.
