Jonathan Suazo Jonathan Suazo

Born and raised in Puerto Rico (July 8th 1989), Jonathan got interested in the arts very early in life. His father was a Graphic Designer/Saxophonist that always had a great love for the arts. These passions rubbed off on young Jonathan as he grew interested in photography, paintings and of course, music. He picked up his dad's instrument at the age of 12 right before starting his studies at the “Escuela Libre de Música Ernesto Ramon Antinini” in San juan, where he graduated from with a growing interest for Jazz music. He then Went along to form part of the Jazz department at the Music Conservatory of Puerto Rico where he really started to dig into the music on a much more serious level. While in the Consevatory, Jonathan received numerous scholarships from Berklee Collage of Music by attending the summer camps that they offer in Puerto Rico every year; Jonathan decided it was best to stay at the Conservatory in Puerto Rico where he graduated from with honors thanks to the teachings and guidance of great teachers like: Marco Pignataro, Rafael “el Indio” Martinez, Ricardo Pons and Mariano Morales. Throughout the years, Jonathan has been making a name for himself in the jazz scene in Puerto Rico, sharing the stage with great artists and friends such as: Paoli Mejias, Miguel Zenón, David Sanchez, Charlie Sepulveda and many others.

Jonathan’s music can be described as “Very emotional” with an Afro Caribbean/ Rock/Experimental vibe to it

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
