Cesar Orozco is a prolific Cuban/Venezuelan pianist, violinist, composer, arranger, producer, and educator based in the New York City area. In 2012, he moved to the United States after receiving a full tuition Assistantship from The Peabody Institute of John Hopkins University, where he earned a Graduate Performance Diploma (GPD) in Jazz Piano. He also holds a degree in violin and ensemble conducting from the National School of Arts in Havana, Cuba. He is a Cubadisco Award winner (the equivalent of our Grammy Award) and wrote a hit musical while living in Venezuela. He created Kamarata Jazz in Venezuela back in 2006. The group was originally conceived as a quintet: piano, electric bass, drums, percussion and Venezuelan cuatro. Currently, they perform as a quintet but use a saxophone instead of the cuatro. Kamarata Jazz mixes Venezuelan and Cuban traditional music with Jazz plus other genres such as flamenco, tango, and bossa nova. The core of the repertoire is based on some of the Orozco’s original compositions, as well as innovative versions of Venezuelan and Cuban pieces from the traditional repertoire. Since arriving in the States, Orozco has become a much in-demand pianist in both Jazz and Latin-American music and with Latin jazz legends such as Paquito D’Rivera, who calls Orozco’s music, “the best combination of Cuban, jazz and Venezuelan music I ever heard.”
