Danilo Perez plays four nights at the Jazz Standard in celebration of the release of "Panama 500."

Grammy Award-winning pianist Danilo Perez celebrates the launch of his new record “Panama 500” with four consecutive nights at the Jazz Standard.

The album, released this past Tuesday on Mack Avenue Records, is Perez’s tribute portrait of his native land Panama. It features Ben Street on bass, Adam Cruz on drums, as well as his Wayne Shorter Quartet collaborators drummer Brian Blade and bassist John Patitucci.

Perez says of the project, “I have been working for years to make music that has an identity very similar to the role that Panama plays in the world. It’s a place where a lot of influences from all over the world come together.”

The live band includes Perez on piano, Street on bass, Cruz on drums, Roman Diaz on percussion and Alex Hardgreaves on violin. The group will play sets at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, with an additional 11:30 p.m. set on Friday and Saturday. Sets on Thursday and Sunday cost $25 a person. Friday and Saturday night shows tickets are $30. Tickets can be purchased here.
