How do you get from Caracas, Venezuela to Carnegie Hall? Well, first you come to the States on vacation, win a full scholarship to a conservatory, study with legends like Roland Hanna, then ... well, you get the idea.
That's the journey undertaken by pianist and composer Luis Perdomo. It's a trip that has taken him from Latin powerhouses like Timbalaye and Ray Barretto's band to more mainstream jazz groups led by folks like Ravi Coltrane and Brian Lynch. Perdomo has released two CD's of his own in the past two years, most recently Awareness, on saxophonist Ravi Coltrane's RKM label.
AAJ Contributor and Podcaster Jason Crane spoke with Perdomo recently, about his orchestral approach to the piano, studying with Harold Danko, and more.
