Without a Net: Reimagining the Stage Dynamic Masterclass w/ Danilo Perez
Panamanian-born pianist, composer and Grammy-winner Danilo Pérez has forged a path of creative exploration that stands among the most diverse, musically challenging, and untethered in all of jazz. From his years in Dizzy Gillespie’s United Nations Orchestra and on to collaborations with some of the most brilliant artists of our time, Pérez has shared his many gifts with the world while maintaining a remarkable commitment to jazz education. In this very special master class for intermediate to advanced level musicians, Pérez will provide insights into his journey as a member of the stunning Wayne Shorter Quartet, demonstrating techniques for creative ensemble play in this participatory class. Students will be invited to join him on stage and “play without a net,” finding ways to create a cohesive sound in spontaneous ways. Limited to 40 intermediate to advanced level musicians.
