Luis Perdomo: Focus Point
AAJ: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
LP: I would just like to thank you for coming out this evening.
AAJ: The pleasure was all mine. In my humble opinion, you and your "posse" represent the future of Jazz and/or Latin Jazz.
LP: Funny you should say that. Branford Marsalis is always saying that Miguel Zenon, Yosvany Terry, Dafnis Prieto, David Sanchez, Danilo Perez and myself are changing the way Latin jazz is perceived. I have never given it much thought.
AAJ: Take it from Branford, he knows what he is talking about. Besides, Branford is not one to bestow a compliment lightly. Switching gears for a moment, back in the 1970's and 1980's it was the Gonzalez brothers, Paquito D'Rivera, Ignacio Berroa opened the doors for a new (multi-cultural) generation of musicians. In my opinion, the torch is being passed...
LP: Thank You for saying that.
AAJ: Thank you for an evening of great music. Also, my gratitude to the staff at the Jazz Gallery for being a home away from home to the next generation of up and coming musicians. On behalf of All About Jazz, continued success.
