Last night during our strictly salsa social dance night, we where blessed with a visit from a great musician Mitch Frohman. I personally met Mitch many years ago in Bognor Regis (England) where I experienced Spanish Harlem Orchestra live (in their original formation), during the first UK Salsa Congress. I think it was somewhere in 2003? Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
I can tell you that was one my personal highlights. Check out Salsa Community official Facebook page.
Mitch Frohman is currently in Aruba as one of the musicians at Carlos Bislip’s jazz expo.
For the people that do not know Mitch Frohman here’s just a little bit of his extensive professional curriculum.
Mitch is a world class award winning Saxophonist & Flautist, look it up.
Also known for his 25-year stint with the Tito Puente Orchestra as well as his membership with the Mongo Santamaria band. Frohman is the leader/co-leader of three of the most in-demand Latin & Latin-Jazz groups; The Bronx Horns, The Mambo Legends Orchestra (former Tito Puente All-Star musicians), and the Eddie Torres Mambo Kings Dance Show Orchestra. He has also played with greats; Celia Cruz, Machito, La Lupe, Cheo Feliciano, Eddie & Charlie Palmieri, Blood Sweat & Tears, Paul Simon, David Byrne, The Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Milly, Jocelyn & Los Vecinos and even Aventura! Of course his signature sound can be heard somewhere in the world everyday as he is the sax soloist on the theme of TV’s mega- hit “Sex & The City“.
