Jazz Around the World – 28 April – Philippines

Welcome to the Philippines. Our lineup today features two greats from different eras.

First we will hear from pianist Roberto Delprado Yulo Enriquez, better known as Bobby Enriquez. Though he is usually associated with the piano, he did play about a dozen other instruments. During his set you will see how he got the nickname “The Wildman”. I was lucky enough to see him perform at the Playboy Jazz Festival back in its infancy. And yes, the nickname fits. Please welcome Bobby Enriquez:

 

Classical Gas

 

Kapantay Ay Langit

 

The Shadow of Your Smile

 

Live at the Village Vanguard with the Ritchie Cole Quintet – “Hi Fly”

 

Next, we’ll hear from Ms Charmaine Clamor. Charmaine can be found gigging around the Los Angeles area…when she is not out touring the world garnering numerous accolades. She is truly becoming a world-class artist. Her sultry voice and impeccable style is winning – and breaking – hearts everywhere. Her brand of music is something she calls ‘Jazzipino’. You have to hear it to understand how she makes Jazzipino work.

We are in for a real treat today: I believe Charmaine will sing for us in three different languages during her set. Ladies and gentlemen, Ms Charmaine Clamor:

 

My Funny Brown Pinay

 

My Harana

 

It Don’t Mean a Thing

 

With Selaelo Selota – “Lolita”

 

Dahil Sa Yo
