Lannie Battistini was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 1994, Lannie returned to Puerto Rico to found Hands In Motion Music, Inc. While Lannie continued to tour throughout the United States and Latin America for internationally known Latin Artists such as Ednita Nazario and Olga Tanon, he participated in the Grammy winning live CD recording, Olga Viva, Viva Olga, at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida in the Merengue/Pop category 2001, following a Grammy nomination for the same album the previous year.
Precise, punching arrangements get the Latin jazz party going in the opening track Gozando, with Lannie Battistini whaling away on the piano and his posse of top-notch players keeping the groove going and alive... Battistini navigates to all musical ports of Latin America.

In a time where there are those who are trying to cling to what works, there are those who continue to reach for the stars! Lannie's not one of those artists that puts out music for the sake of selling records, but for his passion, dedication and respect for the art (especially Latin Music) and of course, Latin Jazz.
