Terraza Big Band
The Terraza Big Band is an 18-piece ensemble based in Queens, NY, and performing monthly at Terraza 7 in Jackson Heights. Under the direction of co-directors Michael Thomas (saxophone) and Edward Perez (bass), this group performs a repertoire of original music penned by its leaders. The Terraza Big Band features many of New York's most in-demand jazz musicians and can be heard at venues throughout New York City in addition to its residency at Terraza 7. Bassist Edward Perez's compositions have been performed by such varied and distinct groups as Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, Ignacio Berroa Trio, two-time latin Grammy nominated singer Jorge Pardo, and acclaimed Galician bagpiper Cristina Pato. His unique voice owes much to his extensive experience in diverse musical styles of Latin America, and he has shared the stage with such greats as Paquito D'Rivera, Lee Konitz, Kenny Werner, Eva Ayllón, and Lucia Pulido. His numerous recording credits include an appearance on the Grammy-nominated "Second Chance" by Hector Martignon.
