2015 Jazz'SALive
International Talent

Tower of Power For close to 50 years, Tower of Power has been creating their own kind of soul music. Since 1968, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of music to their fans, appearing before sold out crowds as they tour the world each year. Tower’s sound can be hard to categorize, but the band's leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as "Urban Soul Music."


The Rippingtons Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons have not only set musical standards in smooth jazz, but their creative and commercial success perfectly parallels the growth of the genre over the past fifteen years. Freeman and his revolving cast of musicians have helped define and redefine the genre during that time.



Beto and The Fairlanes Let your imagination take you to a club, a festival or a crowded dancefloor. The band on stage is Beto and the Fairlanes, and their sound is an original and refreshing new dialect of Texas Salsa music.



Joe Posada is native of San Antonio’s Westside and one of Tejano Music’s most celebrated recording artists, Joe Posada is widely renowned by music lovers for having combined the sounds of Jazz and Tejano, thus creating a unique melodic fuse that has been found both intriguing and real by audiences.



Soul Track Mind infuses soul and R&B with flares of funk, rock, and dance rhythms in a modern sound deeply rooted in retro convictions. Since the band's inception in 2008, whirlwind frontman Donovan Keith and the dapper disciples of Soul Track Mind have become synonymous with wildly entertaining shows that have made them a force to reckon with in the modern soul genre.
