I want to help

Luis Vivanco

Don't have the website. I was born in Santiago de Chile. None of my family is a musician. I started hearing music in serious at four years old. Artists: Chubby Checker, Patachou, Paul Robeson, Paul Anka, etc. At 9 yrs old, my parents, surprised to see I had an enthusiasm for music (Bach, Tchaikovski, Dvorak and a few others) enrolled me in piano lessons in a vain intent to thwart my musical interests. After four yrs, the project showed its failure, for though I loathed piano (and piano lessons) I still liked music.

At 12 started to hear first Jazz records. Glenn Miller, Satchmo & his all stars, etc. then, for some time, got a thing about tropical & latinamerican music (tango, cumbia, rumba, etc.).

”Jazz trio begins area play”. Quote: “They were joined in the second half of their performance by guest saxaphonist [sic] Luis Vivanco, a history/Geography student from Zulia University (LUZ)”. Saturday, March 6, 1982.

There are other quotes, but longer & more ridiculous, so let's stop right here.
