One of the finest jazz performers, and now an equally feted composer, the soulful, expressive, and virtuosic Claudio Roditi is part of the Round Hill catalogue.
Integrating post-bop elements and Brazilian rhythmic concepts into his palette with ease, Claudio Roditi plays with power and lyricism. This versatility keeps the trumpeter in demand as a performer, recording artist and teacher. As Zan Stewart, former jazz reviewer for the Star-Ledger, observed, “‘Master musician’ is the term that comes to mind when discussing trumpeter, flügelhornist and composer Claudio Roditi.”
Having played with Herbie Mann, Paquito D’Rivera, Joe Henderson, Horace Silver, Tito Puente, and McCoy Tyner and the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra and having recorded over 20 albums, Roditi continually develops his playing and compositions through new recording projects.
