Notes of Henry Brun:

Conga dynamo Henry Brun lives by the authenticity, dynamics and “cadencia” of the music he plays. Born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents, Henry started playing the congas at age seven. By the time he was eleven, he was playing professionally. While listening to and being influenced by Latin music pioneers such as Tito Puente, Patato, Buyú, Mongo and Candido, Henry developed his own unique style and technique. Henry’s expertise includes congas, bongos, timbales and the ethnic percussion instruments of Africa, Brazil and the Middle East.

Henry traveled around the world while performing with the U.S. Air Force’s international band, “Tops in Blue." This allowed him to expand his knowledge of global rhythms and provided the stage for him to work with legends such as Maynard Ferguson, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball and several others.

In 1989, Henry created The Latin Playerz, an ensemble that incorporates a variety of Latin styles with Rhythm and Blues, Swing and Jazz. They've become a touring force, popular in the United States and around the world. The Latin Playerz are a three-time winner of Univision’s annual “Latin Jazz Band of the Year.” The Playerz’ album Rhythms and Reeds… A Tribute to the Master Duke Ellington was named one of the Top Twenty Latin Jazz releases of 2009.

When not performing with his ensemble, Henry can often be found presenting educational workshops in San Antonio or touring with international acts such as Arturo Sandoval, Justo Almario, Charo, Los Lobos, Little Joe y La Familia, Los Texmaniacs and more. Henry’s vivacious performances infect the audience with the desire to join in on the fun during his shows.

Other important productions of Henry Brun & Latin Jazz Playerz Richport Enterprises Recordings are: "A Very Latin Christmas", "20th Anniversary", "Soul Tren Latino".

For the past ten years, Henry has hosted the Latin Jazz Brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on KRTU 91.7 FM.
