Hammond Artist JASON MATTHEWS will be at the keyboard helm for the upcoming Tribute to the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson, playing his trusty Hammond Sk-2. Jason’s career has been on a rocketship trajectory, not only playing with Tony Succar, the creator of the Unity show, but also with English Blues Guitarist Matt Schofield. We applaud Jason for representing the Hammond Family on this great event. You can keep up with Jason’s career by going to his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/jasonalexsandre?fref=ts
Unity – The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson
is featured in the 2015 PBS Arts Fall Festival.
Premiere Date: Friday, October 9, 2015
World-class drummer and percussionist Sheila E. hosts a concert special that showcases award-winning Latin artists and a 37-piece orchestra performing Latin-infused arrangements of the songs on Peruvian-born, Miami-raised producer/multi-instrumentalist/arranger Tony Succar’s album Unity: The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson. On its release in April 2015, the album topped the Amazon Latin World Music Charts, the iTunes World Music Charts and the Billboard Tropical Charts at #1.
The concert features live performances of the Latin-infused arrangements of signature Jackson songs like “Smooth Criminal,” “I Want You Back,” “Billie Jean” and others, showcasing musicians from across Latin America brought together by Succar to celebrate and reimagine the iconic song catalog. Among the performers are Jon Secada, Angel Lopez, Michael Stuart, Obie Bermúdez, Jennifer Peña, Kevin Ceballo, Judith Hill and Jean Rodriguez. The concert was taped in Miami in July 2015.
