Negroni’s Trio -][- Just Three – [Mojito Records, 2010]
Hailing from Puerto Rico, accomplished pianist and composer Jose Negroni has garnered recognition in the world of Jazz. A disciple of the legendary multi-instrumentalist salsa and Latin Jazz great, Papo Lucca, Negroni’s career spans over 16 years as a teacher in his island’s Music Conservatory. His talent then took him to the States where he worked as Director for Sony Music Publishing for ten years.
Negroni’s true passion never left him throughout and in 2002 he created Negroni’s Trio, a truly amazing combination where jazz, classic lyricism and Afro Latin punches merge. Negroni’s Trio consists of his son Nomar Negroni, a gifted and powerful drummer, and alternating guest bass players including John Benítez, Marco Panascia, Michael Bordelon and Jonathan Estes, amongst others.
A product of the famed Berklee College of Music, Nomar’s career also includes session work for various great jazz and pop artists and recently was nominated as 2008 Best Drummer of the Year by The Latin Jazz Corner.
Throughout his journey, Negroni performed with the likes of Apollo Sound and was the featured pianist with La Sonora Ponceña when his mentor, the famed Papo Lucca, was unavailable to perform. Simultaneously, Negroni established a successful career as one of the most solicited director, producer and pop music arrangers all while on tour as pianist and director with numerous multinational artists. —Negronistrio.com/Bio
