Luis Disla

If you’re one of those Contemporary Latin Jazz fans who’ve been wondering who and where the most engaging solo voices of the genre currently are, look no further, welcome to the extraordinarily multi-colored musical world of saxophonist/flutist, producer, arranger, composer, educator and Grammy nominated artist Luis Disla! Of all the various hats that this artist has worn, his debut project as a solo artist/instrumentalist/composer/arranger is the culmination of a rich musical journey and easily his most accomplished and compelling personal musical expression, which is abundantly demonstrated on his new CD release, “The Prophecy.”

A graduate of Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Luis has worked with a multitude of top artists, such as Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Kirsty MacColl, Victor Manuelle, Mongo Santamaria, Mario Bauza, Juan Luis Guerra, the Tropicana All Stars, Israel Lopez (Cachao), Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean, Tabou Combo, Nestor Torres, El General, Fulanito, Jaime Camil, Jennifer Peña, Area 305, Noelia, Armando Manzanero, Rey Ruiz, José Luis Rodriguez “El Puma” and José José, among others. He has appeared on over 250 recordings, including commercials for Burger King and Budweiser Beer, on the sound track of the film I Like It Like That (along with Grover Washington Jr., Sergio George, Tito Puente, Ray Barreto, Paquito D'Rivera and Dave Valentin), and on an episode of Showtime’s Dexter.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
