This week on Piano Jazz With Marian Mcpartland
Danilo Perez came from Panama to the U.S., and worked with Dizzy Gillespie's United Nation Orchestra. Dizzy impressed upon him the importance of expressing his own heritage in music. In recent years, Perez has been part of Wayne Shorter's remarkable quartet. We'll hear him in 1994, with Marian McPartland on this week's Piano Jazz, Sunday night at 8.
