Bogna Kicińska / Voice.
Silvano Monasterios / Piano.
Rooted in jazz with classical education on violin and piano as well as inspirations ranging from Polish and Latin folk music to soul music, Bogna Kicinska likes to explore different meanders of improvised music. Her twisted arrangements of jazz standards, scat solos that go beyond the standard bebop style and her versatile singing captivate the listener. Every month she invites a different well-established NYC musician for an inspiring and unique musical journey.
Luis is one of the most active jazz pianists in NYC. Originally from Venezuela, he began playing piano at age 10, and by age 12 he was playing professionally on radio and TV as well as concerts and clubs. Later on, Luis moved to the U.S to attend the Manhattan School of Music on a scholarship, he graduated in 1997 and would later obtain a Master’s degree from Queens College, where he was a student of the great
pianist Sir Roland Hanna.
Soon after moving to New York, he quickly established himself as an in-demand pianist amassing quite an impressive resume. Some of the artists Luis has recorded and/or performed with include Ravi Coltrane, David Sanchez, Jerry Gonzalez, and the “Fort Apache Band”, Tom Harrell, John Patitucci, Ray Barretto,
Brian Lynch, Robin Eubanks, Miguel Zenon, Dave Douglas, David Weiss, and The Cookers, David Gilmore, La India, Ralph Irizarry & Timbalaye, Henry Threadgill and Steve Turre, among others; a list that is as notable both by its high standard as well as its diversity.
Luis is also recognized as a longstanding member of several bands, most notably groups led by Ravi Coltrane, with whom he spent 10 years and Miguel Zenon, with whom he has had a collaboration that is currently on its 19th year. Luis has made also a mark as a performer, composer and arranger on recordings by Ray Barretto, Ignacio Berroa, John Benitez, and Ralph Irizarry.
He can be heard most recently on both Grammy-nominated Ravi Coltrane’s “Spirit Fiction” and Miguel Zenón’s “Tipico”. In 2002 he obtained the 2nd Grand Prix at the “3rd Martial Solal Jazz Piano Competition” in Paris, amongst a pool of 66 international pianists.
In 2016, Mr. Perdomo served as the artistic director of the Langnau Jazz Workshops in Switzerland.
Luis has also taught at the New School for Social Research and currently serves as an adjunct piano professor at Queens College in New York City.
