One of the most classic jazz formulas, the piano/double bass/drums trio includes three masters of their instruments. Danilo Pérez, John Patitucci and Adam Cruz combine their individual qualities with mutual artistic knowledge, making this trio a tremendous small united band. Pérez and Patitucci have been members of the marvelous Wayne Shorter’s quartet for many years.
A keyboard virtuoso, Danilo Pérez was born in Panama: he is a teacher and composer who has operated a fascinating synthesis of Latin-American traditions, jazz, African roots and European classical music. Music is the ideal bridge between different people and civilizations.
John Patitucci is simply one of the greatest and most eclectic double bass players of our times. Conventional jazz and fusion, classical composition and film music: John Patitucci has met all the music genres and poured his stunning instrumental knowledge on them.
Adam Cruz is among the most requested drummers on the New York scene. As with Pérez, he plays with David Sánchez, Tom Harrell, Check Corea’s Origin band, and larger ensembles such as the Mingus Big Band, with which he has recorded three albums and toured. The New York Times defines him as “one of the most respected musicians in New York”.
