Edward Perez with Helio Alves
Hailed by Jazz Times magazine for his “great dexterity,” and Sought by fellow musicians for his creativity and experience in a great diversity of musical styles, New York bassist and composer Edward Perez brings to Terraza’s “hanging stage” his warm-sounding, rhythmically driving and organic bass lines piloting his very own Trio for a colorful array of latin jazz resonances. Perez’s unique sound as a composer traces back to the combination of his grounding in modern jazz and straight ahead combined with insight on percussion and traditional afro-latin music gleaned from his two years in Lima, (where he recorded five albums in the course of a year, including the Latin Grammy Nominee “Peru Blue” by Pamela), as well as his experience with latin jazz heavyweights of New York City.
Constantly searching for new influences in music, Perez continues to explore different styles by working as a sideman with a great variety of groups, from avant-garde jazz to bluegrass and traditional Colombian music. He keeps his career firmly centered in contemporary jazz and latin jazz and continues to tour and perform as a bandleader in New York.
