Only two Saturday concerts remain in the 2011 La Encantada Summer Concert Series – the jazz-fusion sounds of Larry Redhouse Trio on Aug. 13 and Tesoro on Aug. 27. The latter performs Latin jazz to spice up the Southern Arizona Salsa and Tequila Challenge taking place at La Encantada in combination with the final summer concert.       

The free concerts take place at 7 p.m. at La Encantada Shopping Center, on the northwest corner of Skyline Drive and Campbell Avenue.

The Larry Redhouse Trio is led by Navajo pianist Larry Redhouse, an indigenous American musician based in Tucson, performing America’s original art form – jazz.

Redhouse’s trio music has matured with a distinctively modern jazz sound, incorporating elements of straight-ahead jazz, Latin and funk styles into unique heartfelt interpretations of jazz standards and brilliant, soul-stirring originals. Redhouse takes the classic piano trio format and expands it with a tasteful palette of synthesizer colors.

Joining Redhouse are two talented jazz musicians, brother Lenny Redhouse on drums and Mark Usvolk on electric bass.

Performing nationally and internationally, Redhouse has led groups that have opened for such notable jazz musicians as Chick Corea, Terence Blanchard and Donald Harrison. The trio has also performed at The Smithsonian Museum, The Kennedy Center Jazz Club, The Steinway Peace Piano Concert and The Grenoble Jazz Festival in France.

The La Encantada Summer Concert Series has featured an eclectic lineup this summer of talented jazz musicians, performing one-of-a-kind shows in an elegant garden courtyard.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets to enjoy the free performances in comfort.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
