Dans le cadre du festival Jazz-Sur-Seine 2020



Born in 1952 in New York to a family of Puerto Rican descent, Hilton Ruiz was a child musician prodigy. He gave a classical music recital at the age of 8 at Carnegie Hall. He develops a wide palette of expressions, from the most virtuoso, fast, torrential play to the finest delicacies on ballads. At the end of the 1970s, Ruiz was a much requested soloist. He plays with Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, Choco Freeman, before joining saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera, one of the figures of Latin jazz, then trumpeter Jerry Gonzalez. Ruiz will then accentuate in his playing and his compositions elements of Puerto Rican and Cuban music.

A seasoned rhythm that, no doubt, will set this Monday Jam Session on fire !!
