Danilo Pérez: PanaMonk

In collaboration with The Nash’s 5th Anniversary

Born in Panama in 1965, Pérez, at age three, started his musical studies with his father, a bandleader and singer. By age ten, he was studying the European classical piano repertoire at Panama’s National Conservatory of Music. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in electronics in Panama, he moved to the United States and studied jazz composition at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While still a student, he performed with Jon Hendricks, Terence Blanchard, Slide Hampton, Claudio Roditi, and Paquito D’Rivera. Quickly established as a young master, Pérez soon toured and/or recorded with artists such as the Dizzy Gillespie United Nations Orchestra (1989–1992, Jack DeJohnette, Steve Lacy, Lee Konitz, Charlie Haden, Michael Brecker, Joe Lovano, Tito Puente, Wynton Marsalis, Tom Harrell, Gary Burton, and Roy Haynes. In 2000, Pérez joined Wayne Shorter to form Shorter’s great quartet with John Patitucci and Brian Blade. Since 2003, he has been touring with a regular trio featuring Ben Street and Adam Cruz.
