2009 Jacksonville Jazz Festival
YaGozó Latin Jazz Bandthe pioneers of Latin jazz in northeast Florida since 1996. The Spanish gozar means to have fun, to enjoy. Combining a rich heritage of Afro-Cuban and Brazilian influences, YaGozó embodies the enjoyment of jazz in its most diverse expression. Their performance of contemporary and classic jazz standards casts a rhythmic, harmonic, and often fiery canvas that entices the audience to tap, clap, and buzz along. Since 1996, YaGozó have played seven times at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival and been featured alongside seven-time Grammy award winner pianist Eddie Palmieri, Grammy award winner flautist Nestor Torres, and Grammy-nominated saxophonist Ed Calle. Selections from the YaGozó CD recordings, Summer Time and Live at the Adagio, can be heard in radio stations throughout the U.S., Europe, and Australia. At the 2012 Jacksonville Jazz Festival, YaGozó will perform to the theme Latin Jazz Meets Roots Reggae, highlighting the unique contribution of roots reggae to the Latin jazz sound. YaGozó, The Latin Jazz Band are: Al Ortiz (Drums/Percussion), Julio Bello (Piano/Keyboards), Otto Pedraza (Bass), Tony Scozzaro (Guitar), and Felix Colón (Congas/Percussion).
