Edwin Vazquez Musica- great LATIN JAZZ
“If you can imagine the combination of the flare of Elvis Presley, the contortions of Joe Cocker, and the charm of Enrique Iglesias, you have Edwin Vazquez. I can only describe Edwin’s performance as vibrant, energetic, and extremely animated. In one word I’d have to describe his performance as WOW! The audience greeted him with woops and hollers, shouting out otra, otra, otra, at the end of his set. It was quite electric to say the least”.

Rise Again for Theresa Sareo
After the river has flooded, we wait upon the shore; a sail ship approaching.
My breath held by a clamp of wind. A sprite of courage leading you take hold of my arm.
Years ago your wings were broken soaring in a snowstorm. A she eagle whose fierce beauty lingers within your eyes.
Once again your voice flickers within thecathedrals of night.
