Oscar Perez Cuban Afro-Fusion
A former student of master pianists Danilo Perez and Sir Roland Hanna, NYC native Oscar Perez was still in his teens when he began sharing stages with jazz legends like Bunky Green, George Russell, and Curtis Fuller. In recent years, he’s played a strong supporting role in bands led by (among others) Wycliffe Gordon, Christian McBride, Steve Turre, and Dave Stryker. Nuevo Comienzo (New Beginning) is the debut CD by this rising jazz star, its innovative arrangements featuring special guests Wycliffe Gordon (trombone) and Peter Bernstein (guitar). “An improviser and composer with his own distinct voice, NYC native Oscar Perez has expertly combined the traditions of his Cuban heritage with straight– ahead jazz.” (Sheila Anderson, WBGO 88.3 FM)

OSCAR PEREZ TRIO :
bassist CHRIS BERGER drummer ALVESTER GARNETT piano YOURS TRULY
We will be playing some new music by everyone in the band with some compositions by Chick Corea, Thelonious Monk, and Wayne Shorter.
After three albums that garnered much acclimation, Oscar Perez brings together his trio featuring stellar musicians Chris Berger on bass and Alvester Garnett on drums.
JazzTimes praised Perez as “an extraordinary composer who blends the rhythmic complexity of Latin American music with the elegant harmonies of jazz,” while DownBeat chimed in by marveling over the music’s “wondrous interaction of piano and band.”
