Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert Series presents: Aruán Ortiz Quartet

Aruán Ortiz, Piano
Rashaan Carter, Bass
Eric McPherson, Drums
David Gilmore, Guitar

Since arriving in New York City in 2008, Cuban pianist Aruán Ortiz has enjoyed a busy career playing with top artists, composing, teaching, and leading his own superb quartet. Self-described as “a curious person who loves music,” Ortiz expresses his inquisitive personality through every note he plays. Drawing inspiration from the impressionist colors of Maurice Ravel to the spiky rhythms of Thelonious Monk, Ortiz’s sophisticated sound surges with plenty of free-flowing improvisation.
