Roland Vazquez

Throughout his 20 years performing in NYC, composer and drummer Roland Vazquez has developed a “funky-salsa-bebop” style with unique compositions for quintet, octet and big band. As a member of Clare Fischer’s band “Salsa Picante”, Vasquez played on the group’s Grammy-winning “Salsa Picante 2+2.”

As jazz faculty at Manhattan School of Music and the University of Michigan, he taught ensembles, jazz composition, and “Music of the Afro Latin Diaspora”. Roland also received a grant from the Aaron Copland Fund for Music to record “The Visitor” (2009) featuring his all-star NYC jazz orchestra.
