Experiencing some Boston blues after this week's snowstorm and frigid temperatures? Get ready to warm your soul back up with Bostonian and innovative pianist/composer Danilo Perez, performing at Scullers Jazz Club on February 15 and 16.

Touted as a musician, philanthropist, and educator, Perez is generous with his talent and passion. His new album, titled Panama 500 and released February 4, pays tribute to both the 500th Anniversary of the discovery of the South Pacific and the 100th Anniversary of the Panama Canal. The album is the furthest evolution yet of what he calls "three-dimensional music."

Blending Panama's history and cultural influences with complex rhythms and emotions, it takes you on a whole new kind of musical journey. Grammy Award-winning saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter says of Perez, "Danilo is open to whatever comes, in that zero-gravity kind of way. When we become weightless, he doesn't start looking for things to hold on to."

Watch Perez discuss his own journey in creating Panama 500 in the video above, and be sure to catch the master in action next weekend! Tickets can be purchased here.
