From Layers to Simple – An Artist Statement

Artist Statement Recording Project 2015-16 SIMPLE One year ago, I had the idea for a record called “Layers.” With nine songs and a story, I had envisioned working on this new record with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra (a 30-piece classical orchestra), along with my 13-piece band and Special Guests on vocals and percussion. Then, on a day off in November 2014, I realized that I was thinking about music differently. I was at the end of a 10-concert European tour with Vibraphonist legend Gary Burton (who is also known for his 50- year...

Drums Solo in Puerto Rico (March 2017)

Recorded March 24 2017. This gig closed a 5 week tour with Miguel Zenon – Luis Perdomo and Hans Glawishnig. It is in Puerto Rico were I get really nervous. To me is like going to a Jury -maybe created by myself-, but it definitely makes me push harder. It is out of love , respect and admiration to all great musicians from Puerto Rico and the love for my friends and family…and a enormous sense of responsibility towards this Art. Perhaps the only other place I get this is playing at the Village Vanguard in NYC. When is time to play...

Monterrey , Mexico for thousands of people!!. Draco Rosa has been one of my biggest influences , heroes and Idols.His energy is special… One of the happiest moments of my life...
