Aruán Ortiz Trio with Brad Jones and Gerald Cleaver
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Bar LunÀtico is honored to host Aruán Ortiz! Called "one of the most versatile and exciting pianists of his generation" by Downbeat Magazine, the Cuban-born, Brooklyn-based pianist, violist, and composer has written music for jazz ensembles, orchestras, dance companies, chamber groups, and feature films. His work incorporates influences from contemporary classical music, Cuban-Haitian rhythms, and avant-garde improvisation; and consistently strives to break stylistic musical boundaries. BET Jazz calls him "the latest Cuban wunderkind to arrive in the United States." Aruán has received numerous accolades such as the Doris Duke Impact Award (2014); Composers Now Creative Residency Award at Pocantico Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (2014); the Jerome Foundation Travel & Study Grant (2013); Latin Jazz Corner's Arranger of the Year (2011) for his contribution on the album, "El Cumbanchero" by flutist Mark Weinstein (Jazzheads, 2011); Fundación Autor, SGAE, and Generalitat de Catalunya Grant study grants (2002); Semifinalist, Jas Hennessy Piano Solo Competition, Montreux, Switzerland (2001); and Best Jazz Interpretation, Festival de Jazz in Vic, Spain (2000).
