Puerto Rico JazzFest 2017


The twenty-seventh edition of the Puerto Rico Heineken JazzFest (PRHJF) is underway. Running March 23 through March 26, 2017, this prestigious jazz festival is dedicated to Panamanian jazz pianist, composer and humanitarian, Danilo Pérez.

Last year, Luis Álvarez, Puerto Rico Heineken JazzFest’s producer said, “Danilo Pérez is the perfect musician to dedicate the twenty-seventh edition of the Puerto Rico Heineken JazzFest. [. . .] We are very pleased to dedicate this festival to Danilo, a great musician, friend, and above all, an exceptional human being. With this dedication, we recognize his great musical career as a pianist and composer, his humanitarian labor and his commitment with musical education for the youth.”
