About This Event

Danilo Pérez first captured the spotlight as the youngest member of Dizzy Gillespie’s United Nation Orchestra and as pianist on Gillespie’s Grammy Award-winning recording, Live at the Royal Festival Hall. Now he brings his trio, featuring John Patitucci and Brian Blade (from Wayne Shorter’s quartet), to share their love of Dizzy and his music. A highlight of this special performance is the world premiere of Pérez’s piece for piano and string quartet titled Camino de Cruces, commissioned by The Banff Centre, and performed with the Cecilia String Quartet.
