Voted 2011 Latin Jazz Trumpet Player of the Year
by Latin Jazz Corner

Jazz Arts Music Society (JAMS) Concert Series
Tuesday, March 27 at 8 p.m.
Roditi came to Boston in 1970 from his native Brazil via Mexico. He studied at the Berklee College of Music and became musically influenced by Clifford Brown and Lee Morgan. Roditi later joined the faculty of the School of Contemporary Music, meanwhile doing club and concert performances. In 1976 he moved to New York, and quickly broke into the local circuit, performing and recording with Joe Henderson, Charlie Rouse, Herbie Mann, Tito Puente, McCoy Tyner, Horace Silver and Paquito D'Rivera. Roditi established himself as a formidable jazz figure. Since 1989, he has traveled frequently as a member of Dizzy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra. For a while, he also toured with The Jazz Masters, a Gillespie tribute group led by Slide Hampton. Roditi has recorded 16 critically acclaimed albums as a leader since 1984, and Brazilliance X 4 was nominated for a Grammy Award as best Latin jazz album in 2010. In 1995, his Symphonic Bossa Nova recording also garnered a Grammy nomination.
