GIVEAWAY: See Jazz Great Michel Camilo in Concert at the DSO on 10/1 at 8pm


Virtuoso pianist, composer and Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Jazz Creative Director Chair of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) Michel Camilo returns to Orchestra Hall for a performance spiced with his trademark Caribbean rhythms, jazz melodies, and Latin flare in Michel Camilo's Big Band - Caribe.

The performance kicks off the 2010-11 Jazz Series on Friday, October 1, 2010 at 8 p.m.

Known for delivering high-impact exuberant performances, The Boston Globe says "Camilo is a force to be reckoned with." A Grammy, Latin Grammy and Emmy Award-winner, Camilo brings to the stage his signature music, a fusion of mainstream jazz first and foremost, propelled by an infectious Latin tinge and a contemporary sense of swing that reflects his joyously effervescent personality.

The Michel Camilo Trio, composed of pianist Michel Camilo, bassist Charles Flores, and drummer Cliff Almond returned to Orchestra Hall on Friday May 7th, joined by bassist Esperanza Spalding, saxophonist David Sánchez, and pianists Alfredo Rodríguez and Luke Celenza. The concert is part of the DSO's Bank of America Paradise Jazz Series. I received my tickets courtesy of the DSO.

Tickets for Michel Camilo’s Big Band – Caribe on October 1st range in price from $19 to $63 with a limited number of box seats available for $99. Tickets may be purchased and/or reserved at the DSO Box Office (3711 Woodward Ave., Detroit), by calling the DSO at (313) 576-5111 or by visiting http://www.detroitsymphony.com/.

I attended Michel's last concert at the DSO and it was wonderful.  Don't miss this evening of beautiful jazz as only Michel can deliver.
