"… but there are still amazing musicians like Danilo Perez, who plays piano with Wayne Shorter's quartet. He is not afraid of anything." - Herbie Hancock

Pianist, composer, educator and social activist, Danilo Pérez is among the most influential and dynamic musicians of our time.

“The Pérez trio truly plays with a kind of ESP that can’t be taught or copied – with subtle shifts of rhythm, dynamics, harmony, phrasing – you can trace it back to Dizzy through Wayne Shorter and Miles Davis...” TORONTO JAZZERS

“A band of spellbinding intuition, with an absolute commitment to the spirit of discovery, it has had an incalculable influence on the practice of jazz in the 21st century.” THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Danilo Pérez has all of the attributes of a performer, conductor, impresario, and purveyor of musical expression greatly needed in these uncertain times. His effort to bring to the world a beacon of hope and inspiration ... is a prime example of confidence in a future laden with cornucopian gifts for all humanity.” WAYNE SHORTER

Grammy award winner DANILO PÉREZ is among the most influential and dynamic musicians of our time. In just over a decade, his distinctive blend of Pan-American jazz (covering the music of the Americas, folkloric and world music) has attracted critical acclaim and loyal audiences.

Danilo’s abundant talents and joyous enthusiasm make his concerts both memorable and inspiring. Whether leading his own ensembles or touring with renowned jazz masters (Wayne Shorter, Roy Haynes, Steve Lacy), Danilo is making a decidedly fresh imprint on contemporary music, guided, as always, by his love for jazz.

He has led his own groups since the early ‘90s, and as bandleader has earned three Grammy® nominations for his ebullient and innovative recordings. Motherland, was nominated for two Grammy® Awards for “Best Latin Jazz Album,” and also garnered his third win for “Best Jazz Album” from the prestigious Boston Music Awards. Motherland was named (as were his previous four releases) among the best albums of the year by such publications as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, San Diego Tribune, Billboard and Jazz Times. In 2002, he received a nomination from the Jazz Journalists Association for “Pianist of the Year.”

Currently, Perez serves as UNESCO Artist For Peace, Artistic Director of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, and Artistic Director of the Panama Jazz Festival. In previous years, he served as Goodwill Ambassador to UNICEF and Cultural Ambassador to the Republic of Panama.
