Latin Jazz with a spicy blend of standards and originals with Bill Perkins on guitar, Sam Burke on bass, and Jose Castillo on congas and percussion.
Frito Puente will be followed by The TJO Seven, a little big band with four horns directed by Eddie Dalton.The Kingsport-based TJO Seven is comprised of musicians from Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia who favor the stylings of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and others.
