Danilo Pérez, John Patitucci & Adam Cruz Trio

For over three decades, Grammy Award-winning pianist-composer Danilo Pérez has been hailed as one of the most creative forces in contemporary jazz music. Pérez’s global jazz is a blend of his Panamanian roots, Latin American folk music, West African rhythms and European impressionism.

Master Peréz’s last visit to Fasching was with Bohuslän Big Band in 2020, and before that with Children of the light – the tight-knit trio consisting of bassist John Patitucci, drummer Brian Blade and Peréz himself – who together made up three quarters of Wayne Shorter’s last quartet – a quartet who became known for an almost telepathic way of communicating musically and won a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album 2019 with EMANON.

When Danilo Peréz returns to Kungsgatan 63, he again has John Patitucci by his side. Patitucci, who attracted the attention of the jazz world already in the 1980s when he played with Chick Corea, but who has also performed and recorded with artists from both the pop and classical worlds. On the drum stand sits Adam Cruz, who has worked with Joey Calderazzo, Chris Potter and The Mingus Big Band and teaches at the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, the institute in Boston that Danilo Peréz founded in 2010 and where he is still active as artistic director.

Jazz club Fasching has the honor of welcoming a trio of instrumentalists of the world class.
