César Orozco Trio$12
“César Orozco manages to make the best combination between Cuban, Jazz and Venezuelan music I ever heard”. Paquito D’Rivera
Since relocating to the New York tri- state area in 2015, Mr. Orozco has become an in-demand pianist as a sideman as well as a leader of his own projects. Some of the artists he has worked with include Paquito D’Rivera, Pedrito Martinez, Gary Thomas, Yosvany Terry, Flavio Sala, Luisito Quintero, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Luis Enrique, Itai Kriss, Troy Roberts, Paul Bollenback, Jeremy Warren, and Giovanni Hidalgo just to name a few. He has appeared in more than 70 albums and his recording as a leader include “Son con Pajarillo” (2007), “Ebano y Marfil” (2008), “Orozcojam” (Guataca, 2010), which was awarded for Best vocal/Instrumental album at Cubadisco 2012 in Havana, Cuba, “No Limits for Tumbao” (Alfi Records, 2015) and the latest one “Stringwise”, a duet with the outstanding Venezuelan Cuatro player Jorge Glem.
This Jazz Trio mixes Venezuelan and Cuban traditional music with Jazz plus other genres such as flamenco, tango, and bossa nova. The core of the repertoire is based on some of the Orozco’s original compositions, as well as innovative versions of well-known Venezuelan and Cuban pieces from the traditional repertoire. The project summarizes the musical background and extensive influences that Orozco has developed after living in three different countries with strong musical cultures such as Cuba, Venezuela and now, USA.
