Ramon Vazquez Ramon Vazquez

Ramon Vazquez Martirena (Bassist, composer,recording artist,arranger and producer) Born on August 15, 1970 in the Cuban Province of Matanzas. From a very early age, like many Cubans,he had to flee his country and moved to Puerto Rico with his family, with the hope of making their dreams come true.

He began in music while still in middle school, where there was a student band. His first musical steps were with the triangle and the clave. After learning from his professor that the band needed a bassist, Ramon accepted the challenge and this way began his dedication to the study of his instrument.

Ramon graduated from the famed Escuela Libre de Musica in 1989 with high honors. He studied the bass privately and participated in several workshops and seminars including: The Manhattan School of Music Summer Workshop, the Bass Summit at the National Guitar Summer Workshop, and for three years (1995-97) the Berklee College in Puerto Rico, where he was awarded for “Outstanding Musicianship” with a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, Massachusetts. Ramon continued his musical studies at the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music where he graduated in 1998 with a Bachelors of Music in Double Bass and Musical Education.

During his musical career, Ramon has worked as a private teacher, taught at the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music and at the Music Department of the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
