Come enjoy a night of world class jazz with the Martin Bejerano Trio at the intimate WDNA Jazz Gallery.
Martin Bejerano, a native of Miami, Florida, graduated from the esteemed New World School of the Arts. He received a full scholarship to attend Florida State University, where he studied classical piano with Leonidas Lipovetsky, and jazz piano, composition, and arranging with Bill Peterson, whom he cites as one of his most important influences. He then went on to receive a Masterâ€™s degree from the University of Miami, also under full scholarship.
Bejerano now lives in New York and plays with legendary jazz drummer and Grammy award-winning artist Roy Haynes. In 2004, their recording “Fountain of Youth” was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Jazz Album–Martinâ€™s first recording on a major label. In January 2002, Martin also joined internationally acclaimed guitarist Russell Maloneâ€™s quartet, and continues to tour and record with both these groups.
Heâ€™s back in New York but this will be a special performance in the WDNA Jazz Gallery ahead of his new recording.
