Saturday February 3, 8 PM: Arts Garage presents the Kiki Sanchez Latin Jazz Ensemble. Among the new generation of young Afro-Peruvian Jazz musicians that are emerging on the national Jazz scene is pianist Kiki Sanchez. Born in Lima Peru, Sanchez began playing piano at age 11. Later he moved to Miami, Florida, where he continued studying piano as well as cultivating a deep love for American Jazz.
Sanchez's musical interpretation is resounding, leaving the listener with admiration and much anticipation for greater things to come from a musician of such high caliber.
Sanchez has also produced an instructional DVD called "The Real Latin Piano and the introduction to Afro-Peruvian Rhythms"; in it you'll find essential musical knowledge that accentuates the building blocks of Latin music, as well as offering a fresh introspective view on various Afro-Peruvian rhythms as applied to Jazz.
With all these great musical things happening in Kiki's life, it is no doubt that greater things are still to come for this young inspiring Jazz musician. Kiki's recent release, "Two Worlds" has been well-received, as have his three prior CD's.
"Excellent, clean improvisation, beautiful compositions, a fresh new arrangement of "El Condor." [Dreams is] perfect for music lovers, arrangers, composers, and contemporary radio stations." - Moise Medacier, reviewing his first CD, Dreams
