It doesn't get much better than this! Hand-picked by Dave Brubeck to attend the Brubeck Institute, then on to a Residency at the Kenndey Center and now at the Herbie Hancock Institute - all the while circling the globe and playing with anyone who is anyone in the worlds of jazz , blues, hip-hop, Indie and World.

Javier Santiago is a true pianist of the new millenium. His music speaks to audiences of every age, background and gender. Santiago is an artistic visionary who embraces traditions in music while forging ahead with innovations in new sounds, technology and concepts. The piano has been always been one of his main mediums of expression and composition but his music consists of all instrumentations ranging from big bands, string quartets and the acoustic piano trio to hip-hop beats and the integration of synthesizers, keyboards and other electronics.

Santiago started playing piano at the age of 5, and was classically trained until he discovered his love of jazz music at the age of 11.He has studied with some of the greatest musicians in the world; Christian McBride, Robert Glasper, Nicholas Payton and Joshua Redman to name a few.

In 2016 Santiago became a recipient of the 2016 McKnight Fellowship for Musicians. He returned to the studio to record his debut LP of all original compositions entitled Phoenix with a sextet including his former east coast trio consisting of drummer Corey Fonville and bassist Zach Brown as well as saxophonists Dayna Stephens and Ben Flocks and guitarist Nir Felder. It features guests such as trumpeter Nicholas Payton, John Raymond and vocalist J. Hoard.

Along with being an accomplished pianist, Javier is also a prolific composer. His work is an eclectic blend of American music ranging from Jazz and Blues all the way to Hip-Hop and Indie Rock and World music. Javier is also an educator, arranger and producer.

Featuring Giulio Xavier on bass, and Malachi Whitson on drums.
