Negroni's Trio

José Negroni, pianist and composer with an outstanding creativity, has acquired recognition in the world of Jazz. His band, Negroni’s Trio, is formed by his son Nomar Negroni, talented drummer and of great vigour (product of the Berklee College of Music); and of guest bass players like John Benitez, Marcos Panascia and Jonathan Estés, amongst others. The master performances of Negroni’s Trio achieve a truly amazing combination where jazz, classic lyricism and Afro Latin punches, merge.

Negroni is native of Puerto Rico and disciple of the salsa legend Papo Lucca, and technique and classic music teachers like the outstanding Alicia Morales. He was a teacher in the Music Conservatory in Puerto Rico for more than sixteen years. He had the chance of perform with the salsa’s greatest like La Sonora Ponceña and Apollo Sound. At the same time that he was establishing a successful career like one of the directors, producers and pop music arrangers most wanted; he was on tour as pianist and director with the biggest Latin sensations, for example: José Luis Rodriguez El Puma, Chayanne, Carmita Jiménez and Braulio.

His first album, “Naturaleza/Nature” (2003), in Universal Music Latino, combines progressive jazz elements, pop and Latin music, and at the same time gives homage to the spirit of his native island. Since its release, Naturaleza/Nature, has achieved places on the charts of jazz and new age radio stations, throughout the United States of America.
