Bassist and composer Edward Perez lives in the cultural crossroads of Jackson Heights, Queens. His writing ranges from works for solo instrumentalists to arrangements for salsa band, string orchestra, and jazz big band. His works have been performed by artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Cristina Pato, Silk Road Ensemble, Latin jazz pioneer Ignacio Berroa, and Peruvian vocalist Jorge Pardo. Mr. Perez began his career as a jazz bassist and quickly branched out to Latin jazz, Afro-Peruvian music, and other styles from South America and around the world. A graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy, Harvard College, and Queens College, he has shared the stage with Paquito D’Rivera, Lee Konitz, Lionel Loueke, Eva Ayllón, Julio “Chocolate” Algendones, Silk Road Ensemble, Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, Joe Burgstaller of the Canadian Brass, and Helio Alves. Mr. Perez tours extensively and also maintains a local presence teaching and co-leading the Terraza Big Band, the 18-piece house band of his neighborhood’s preeminent cultural venue. .
