Right after the UIS festival I spend some days at Centro de Educación Musical de Bucaramanga with some talented students. We did clinics on improvisation, jazz, ensembles as well as individual piano classes.
So much young talent in Colombia!

On August 21-22 I was invited to perform at the XXXI Festival Internacional de Piano UIS in Bucaramanga, COLOMBIA.
This time I played with Italian saxophonist Gianni Bardaro at the magnificent Luis A. Calvo Concert Hall. We played to a full house and the next day We did a second concert in Barrancabermeja also as part of the Festival. In addition, we did some clinics with students from UIS. I was very glad to visit this amazing city and share with these wonderful people. Until next time!

On July 26th I will be back to the Jazz Gallery again with Matana Robert’s Anthem. I had been collaborating with Matana for a number of years and being someone who likes to explore music within wide boundaries this is one of my most fun projects to play in. Please join us!


We did a show at Spire Center for Performing Arts in Plymouth, MA with a great audience.

While in Boston around 2002 I formed with New England Conservatory classmates my first and most important band, Surca Quartet. After performing continuously for a couple of years, the band went into a long hiatus. Finally after several attempts to play together again I was lucky to play at the Jazz Gallery one of my favorite venues in New York. This was a special reunion since we hadn’t played together in public for more than 10 years! We played mostly new music to be released soon.
