This edition of the Festival will be in tribute to the Panamanian saxophonist “Reggie Johnson”. As is tradition, different activities will be carried out, including clinics, auditions, symposiums, live art, workshops, concerts, jam sessions and global stage.
“Adam Cruz” (USA): drummer and composer born in New York City, best known for his work with Danilo Perez, Tom Harrell and Edward Simon. He worked extensively with saxophonist David Sánchez and the Mingus Big Band during the 1990s. He then toured and recorded with Chick Corea, recording Origin and Live on the Blue Note.
“Cyrus Chesnut” (USA): Born in 1963, “Chestnut” began his musical career at the age of three, playing the piano at Mount Calvary Star Baptist Church at the age of six in his hometown of Baltimore, MD . At age nine, I studied classical music at the Peabody Preparatory Institute in Baltimore. Cyrus began to further refine his trade as a companion with some of the legendary musicians and business leaders.
“Lucía Pulido” (Colombia): contemporary Colombian singer, who, from a project of experimentation with traditional music from several regions, has achieved greater versatility and mastery in her interpretation. Lucia handles several repertoires and styles, all of them with a high virtuosity. It is without a doubt the most important avant garde jazz voice in Colombia.
“Patricia Zarate Perez” (Chile): executive director of the Panama Jazz Festival. Patricia’s first recording, “Violetas”, is a collection of original material and Chilean popular music that mixes jazz improvisation, Latin rhythms and songwriting. Produced by Grammy Winner pianist Danilo Pérez, the recording explores Chilean music in a harmoniously sophisticated sound landscape that recontextualizes and expands Chilean images and landscapes.
