Originally from Venezuela, guitarist Juanma Trujillo moved to New York in 2014, and has become an important member of the city’s jazz music scene. Juanma has played in numerous musical ensembles performing in venues all over the world, including Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Venezuela, Austria and Slovenia.
He has played in groups with outstanding artists such as Francisco Mela, Arturo O’Farrill, Ras Moshé, Mimi Jones, Guillermo Gregorio, Nick Grinder, Rebecca Sullivan, Ethan Helm, Leonor Falcón, Juan Pablo Carletti, Christof Knoche, and Andrew Schiller among others.
Trujillo has developed a personal playing style that embraces many musical lineages from jazz, rock and Latin American music to improvised music. He continually strives to innovate amongst his contemporaries while also incorporating the mastery of his predecessors into his forward-leaning artistic explorations.
His latest release “Contour” on Clean Feed Records marks the fourth release from Trujillo. A splendid trio with bassist Kenneth Jimenez and master drummer Gerald Cleaver. https://cleanfeedrecords.bandcamp.com/album/contour
At Jazz Point 2023 Juanma will play with Javier Moreno on contrabass and Ramon Prats on drums with special guest Javier Vercher on tenor saxophone.
