Xavier Perez

Raised in the Hialeah, Florida area to Cuban parents, Xavier represents two distinct cultures in his musical compositions and life. Although he has chosen jazz music as his vehicle for self-expression, elements of his Cuban Folkloric and American jazz upbringing also make his multi-faceted musical personality. While in college he studied composition under Ron Miller and won collegiate soloist of the year from Downbeat magazine. Upon graduation with honors he has done national tours with Maynard Ferguson and Diane Schure among others. He has also been chosen to perform his original compositions as a part of Kennedy Center jazz in Washington DC
