The Jazz Estate is excited to celebrate with Milwaukee’s Own La Chazz
La Chazz was formed in 1978 by guitarist Toty Ramos. It began as an 11 piece salsa band that featured original compositions as well as renditions of many of the famous Latin bands of the time, including New York’s Fania All-Stars and Cuba’s Irakere. The band was chosen to open for the great Puerto Rican singer Celia Cruz, and the band was on the map. However, it would be Toty’s original compositions that began to define the band’s identity.
