Henry Brun and the Latin Playerz Orchestra 25th Anniversary

Born in the Bronx, raised in Puerto Rico and based out of San Antonio, conga player Henry Brun has spent his life exploring different avenues of the Afro-Latin tradition. On his 25th anniversary album with the Latin Playerz, In Ritmo We Trust, Brun puts it all together with a thrilling command of the clave beat. For his silver anniversary, Brun invited an incredible cast to the party. His usual Playerz, like trumpeter/musical director Rudy Estrada and pianist Travis Davis, show up with bright style and a vibrant tone. Throughout the album, Davis is a monster, trading off between the soul-jazz onda of Horace Silver and the incantational salsa of Eddie Palmieri. But the special guests on the album make the party stand out as one of San Antonio’s best of the year. With Brun churning away in the rhythm section, vibraphonist Joe Caploe, trumpeter Pete Rodríguez, guitarist Joe Reyes and San Anto horn legend Spot Barnett all pitch into the rhythm. Even tejano legend Little Joe gets in on the bash, purring over the slow-cooked “Y.”

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
