Arturo Stable, Luis Perdomo, Ricky Rodriguez at @exuberance
Arturo Stable begins a new piano trio project starting with one of the bright lights of jazz piano—Luis Perdomo.
A native of Caracas, Luis quickly became a fixture on the New York scene in the early 90s playing with Dave Douglas, David Sanchez, Tom Harrell, Steve Turre, Ben Wolfe, Ray Barretto, Brian Lynch, David Gilmore, Conrad Herwig, Ignacio Berroa, Ralph Irizarry and Timbalaye and other great musicians. He was a member of Ravi Coltrane’s Quartet for ten years and a founding member of the Miguel Zenon Quartet. Perdomo recorded on three Grammy-nominated CD’s: Coltrane’s Influx, and Zenon’s Esta Plena, and Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook.
In addition, he has released nine CDs as leader: Focus Point in 2005, Awareness in 2006, Pathways in 2008, Universal Mind in 2012, The Infancia Project in 2012, Links in 2013 and Twenty-Two in 2015 as well as Montage and Spirits and Warriors in 2016.
@exuberance regulars know Arturo Stable from his appearances here—most recently with the amazing Ariacne Trujillo. A great percussionist and drummer, Arturo is also a gifted composer as documented in his albums 3rd Step, Notes on Canvas, Call and Cuban Crosshatching.
Joining them for this night @exuberance is Ricky Rodriguez on bass, who plays with David Sanchez, Claudia Acuña, Joe Locke, Alvin Batiste, Stephon Harris, Ignacio Berroa, and Henry Cole among others.
The crossroads of jazz and latin offer the most exciting music I know. This trio is a prescription for pure joy. If you’re not allergic to swing and clave, be here.
