Juan Saiz Juan Saiz

Born in 1986 in Santander and begins to play the transverse flute at the age of 10 at the Conservatory Jesus de Monasterio de Santander, where he studies flute with Jaime Salas and composition with Emilio Otero.

During his last years at the conservatory he focuses on the study of jazz and contemporary composition and, shortly thereafter, moves to Barcelona to study the upper level of Jazz and Modern Music at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC).

He completed his studies between Barcelona and the Kask-Koninklijk Conservatorium de Ghent (Belgium) with professors such as Bart Defoort, Eladio Reinón, Gary Willis, Agustí Fernández, Gorka Benítez, Julia Gallego. In addition, he has received classes and masterclasses from musicians such as Terrell Stafford, Benny Green, David Liebman, Pat Metheny or Jaime Martín among others.

He has collaborated with musicians and groups of different styles ranging from jazz, free improvisation, flamenco, contemporary music or folk to classical music. Some of them are the violinist and singer Iva Bittovà, Terry Day, Bart Maris, Baldo Martínez, the Big Band Free Spirits by David Mengual, Jairo León, Zrío or Sistemia. He has shared the stage with bands like The Chieftains or Alan Stivel. He has also performed as a soloist with the JOAC symphony orchestra and has participated in various recordings as a studio musician for very heterogeneous groups.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
