Quotes & Highlights
- "Rodriguez is both a first-rate jazz trumpeter and an ebullient, entertaining performer… he devoted his entire program to Latin rhythm transformations of Christmas music -- from salsa-drenched versions of 'O Tannenbaum' and 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' to a sweetly lyrical flugelhorn rendering of 'The Christmas Song.'" --<em>Los Angeles Times</em>
Grammy nominee Dr. Bobby Rodriguez returns to the Luckman Fine Arts Complex with his crowd-pleasing annual LatinJazz Christmas show, featuring Rodriguez's 23-piece LatinJazz Orchestra.
A high-energy, family-friendly event, the LatinJazz Christmas show has been performed at the Luckman and other venues since 1997. Rodriguez is a consummate trumpeter whose warm-hearted humor and brilliant musicianship make his show a standout among Southern California’s holiday concert offerings. The nonstop musical treats will include favorite tunes with a Latin twist: “Feliz Navidad” in cha-cha-cha, “Deck the Halls” in merengue, “O Christmas Tree” in salsa, “Jingle Bells” in samba and many more.
Canned goods and unwrapped toys will also be collected at the show, so please feel free to bring any that you would like to donate. Donation is not required for admission.
Born and raised in East Los Angeles, Latin legend and Grammy-nominated artist Dr. Bobby Rodriguez is a trumpeter, dynamic leader, charismatic performer/entertainer, gifted composer/arranger, author and an award-winning educator.
