Some Quotes...."whatever"

“Perez can be heard at his best on track two entitled, Baile de K in which (if the listener has ears) one can hear a respectful nod to the great Bud Powell. This is a superb Latin Jazz recording. 5 Stars”
- John Gilbert, eJazznews

“Perez shows his ample skill on this first album, incorporating the stylistic elements of Tyner, Hancock and Chucho Valdes. …It’s just a matter of time 
before his name enters the jazz public’s consciousness.”
-Matt Merewitz, All About Jazz

“Prolific pianist and composer Oscar Perez delivers an amazing bouquet of Latin jazz compositions. Perez blends his rhythmic Cuban roots and American jazz with high skill.”
-Dr. Ana Isabel Ordonez of JazzReview.com

-Joseph Blake of The Times Colonist


"This is a musician that has his own voice. Both his compositions 
and his improvisations are evidence of this"

to this emerging jazz ensemble.”

aggressive jazz tunes and skillful improvisation.”

his new CD, Nuevo Comienzo - and justly so.”
