Luis 'LoudMouth' Camacho JAZZ AND SALSA INFLUENCED
Luis Camacho fuses the rhythms of old Puerto Rico and Cuba into a modern Jazz collaboration with a distinctly unique sound that echoes more than a hint of Latin Heritage to produce melodies rich with culture and a distinct leading edge. He conducts two tight and distinct bands. First, a group of seasoned salsa musicians that includes Brass, Piano, Congas, Timbales and Bass to Back up Luis formidable vocals. Second, a Jazz quartet that is down with the sensual sounds and melodies of LoudMouth’s compositions that ranges from original numbers to Van Morrison to Classic Cole Porter and beyond. Luis alternately vocalizes, blows his horn and conducts, bringing forth the superlative talents of each of his band members while graciously orchestrating each into a combined Jazz force of perfect synchronization. Occasionally guest musicians sit in to add to the rich flavor of the overall mix. This is one of the premier Jazz men of our time yet accessible and humble in his approach with the audience. It is not just the melody or instrumentation, but also the vocalization of the word Luis sings to embrace each member in the room with a sensual experience.
