Jorge Pérez
Artist
Spaniard born in Boston, USA in 1979. He was raised in Madrid where he studied percussion and architecture. In 2004 began working professionally with different jazz and fusion bands like Mojo Project, La Chuma Segura Hot Band, La Calle Caliente, and with artists like Jerry Gonzáles, Caramelo, Pepe Rivero, Aláin Perez or Emilio Valdés. In Cuba he learned about the roots of the folkloric afro Cuban music and received classes from the maestro Jose Luis Quintana “Changuito”. Jorge has become one of the most claimed young musicians of the Madrid scene, besides being one of the few percussionists able to professionally roll the drums, instrument which he learned to play with Carlos Carli and Yayo Morales. He performed with Egui Castrillo, Victor Mendoza, Mark Walker, Kalani Trinidad, John Lockwood, Rebecca Cline, Aláin Pérez, Daniel García Trio, Vardan Ovsepian, Spainthelighter, the Big Band JCA, and the Afrodisian Orchestra, taking part in international festivals such as Newport 2010, Monterey 2010, and Panama 2011 together with Daniel García and Aláin Pérez.

PATAX – From the boiler room

Well, here you have the third record of my band “Patax”, composed and recorded entirely between my first days in Boston on January 2009 and my return to Madrid on December 2010. I think that when I start working in a new album, my head makes an unconscious move and forgets how hard it is to make this possible. The load of work from the first key until you finally get the CD is so absurd that every time I ask myself why I do it over again.

I was leaving from a day of practice in the boiler room of our rented house on 250 River Street, when I saw it clearly as I was walking up the stairs: it will be called: “From the boiler room”, and indeed from the very deepest.
