About special guest Luis Disla

If you're one of those contemporary Latin jazz fans who've been wondering where the most engaging solo voices of the genre currently are, look no further. Welcome to the extraordinarily multi-colored musical world of saxophonist, flutist, producer, arranger, composer, educator, and Grammy-nominated artist Luis Disla. Of all the various hats this artist has worn, his debut project as a solo artist is the culmination of a rich musical journey and easily his most accomplished and compelling personal expression.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Luis has worked with a multitude of top artists such as Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Kirsty MacColl, Victor Manuelle, Mongo Santamaria, Mario Bauza, Juan Luis Guerra, the Tropicana All Stars, Israel Lopez (Cachao), Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean, Tabou Combo, Nestor Torres, El General, Fulanito, Jaime Camil, Jennifer Peña, Area 305, Noelia, Armando Manzanero, Rey Ruiz, José Luis Rodriguez ("El Puma"), and José José. He has appeared on over 400 recordings, including commercials for Burger King and Budweiser; the soundtrack to the film I Like It Like That (along with Grover Washington Jr., Sergio George, Tito Puente, Ray Barreto, Paquito D’Rivera, and Dave Valentin); and an episode of Showtime's Dexter.

Luis Disla is a Selmer Paris and Vandoren Reeds exclusive artist, as well as a BMI composer.
