About the album

Urbanessence, the second solo album by veteran trumpeter and composer Tito Carrillo, is an homage to the funky beauty and unique energy of city life—where profound human connections are established daily with those who look and speak differently from one another, and where the art, language and delicacies from every tribe are celebrated. Cities are home to the creators, the visionaries, and the innovators, who marshal armies of people motivated by the hope they provide and the vision they impart. For the artists themselves, the city is their playground. With saxophonist Troy Roberts, pianist Ben Lewis, bassist Clark Sommers, drummer Jay Sawyer, and percussionist Victor Gonzalez, Carrillo channels and celebrates the black music traditions from the three Americas through this set of 10 original compositions.
Urbanessence, das zweite Soloalbum des erfahrenen Trompeters und Komponisten Tito Carrillo, ist eine Hommage an die funkige Schönheit und einzigartige Energie des Stadtlebens - wo täglich tiefe menschliche Verbindungen mit Menschen geknüpft werden, die anders aussehen und anders sprechen, und wo die Kunst, die Sprache und die Köstlichkeiten jedes Stammes gefeiert werden. Städte sind die Heimat von Schöpfern, Visionären und Innovatoren, die Heerscharen von Menschen um sich scharen, die durch die Hoffnung, die sie vermitteln, und die Vision, die sie weitergeben, motiviert werden. Für die Künstler selbst ist die Stadt ihr Spielplatz. Zusammen mit dem Saxophonisten Troy Roberts, dem Pianisten Ben Lewis, dem Bassisten Clark Sommers, dem Schlagzeuger Jay Sawyer und dem Perkussionisten Victor Gonzalez kanalisiert und zelebriert Carrillo die schwarzen Musiktraditionen der drei Amerikas in diesem Set von 10 Originalkompositionen.

Tito Carrillo (trumpet)

Tito Carrillo is one of the finest trumpeters to emerge from Chicago's rich jazz trumpet legacy. He is an accomplished trumpeter, educator, bandleader, and composer, and since 1996 he has been a fixture in the Chicago jazz and latin music scenes.  A native of Austin, Texas, the list of artists he has performed, recorded, and toured with is as varied and impressive as his skill set. He has worked with Chicago heavyweights Willie Pickens, John Moulder, Patricia Barber, Ryan Cohan, and Dana Hall; big bands such as the Woody Herman Orchestra (Frank Tiberi, director), the Chicago Jazz Ensemble (Bill Russo and Jon Faddis, directors), the Chicago Jazz Orchestra (Jeff Lindberg, director), and the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra (David Baker, director); jazz...

His work has been heard at international jazz festivals in Chicago, Telluride, Montreaux (Switzerland), the Netherlands, and Finland. He has appeared on over 20 CD recordings in his 14-year career, as well as the concert DVD Quincy Jones: Live at Montreux 1996. Tito Carrillo is also active in jazz education, and was appointed as full-time jazz trumpet professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2006. Prior to his appointment at Illinois, he served on the faculty at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, as well as at Northwestern University. He also has helped to spread jazz awareness to Chicago's inner city schools through the Ravinia Jazz-in-the-Schools outreach program.
