The Masters Speak Series is a collection of interactive, exclusive interviews led by jazz radio legend Steve Schwartz. On November 26, Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Danilo Pérez will be the featured guest.

Pérez is among the most influential and dynamic musicians of our time. In just over a decade, his distinctive blend of pan-American jazz has attracted critical acclaim and loyal audiences. Whether leading his own ensembles or touring with renowned jazz masters (such as Wayne Shorter, Roy Haynes, and Steve Lacy), Pérez is making a decidedly fresh imprint on contemporary music, guided, as always, by his love for jazz.

Born in Panama in 1965, Pérez went to Berklee in the 1980s and has led his own groups since the early 1990s. As a bandleader, he has earned three Grammy nominations. Pérez serves as the UNESCO Artist for Peace, artistic director of the Panama Jazz Festival, and artistic director of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. He also presides over the Danilo Pérez Foundation, a music outreach program for children of poverty in Panama.

Boston-based radio host Schwartz will interview Pérez. Born and raised in Boston, Schwartz has spent more than 20 years in radio, most notably at WGBH, until 2012. Schwartz has interviewed George Garzone and Dave Liebman as part of the Masters Speak Series and countless other jazz musicians throughout his career.
