Artist Info

Fred Ramirez

Fred RamirezData provided by DiscogsBorn in Los Angeles, Fred Ramirez began his classical piano training at the age of six. At the age of 16 he bought a 'Musser Vibraphone' and taught himself how to play by listening to the likes of [a3750], [a19594] and [a149254]. He started playing in nightclubs and his talent as a young pianist & vibraphonist quickly spread throughout the L.A. jazz scene. In the 60s and 70s he played in various bands and was on many tours across the states. In his extensive career he has worked with many greats of jazz and Latin America. With his own Latin jazz ensemble he was a welcome guest at numerous festivals and jazz clubs until the beginning of the new century.
In 1967 Fred released two singles with cover versions of well-known soul & jazz songs on [l1000] records, on which his unmistakable and extraordinary piano style and talent is evident.
He was also a member of the nine-piece band [a550907], which was signed directly in the recording studio by [a253417], one of the founders of [l681]. In the same year 1972 the LP was released on Atlantic.
In 1995, he released an album on CD with a multi-piece orchestra entitled "A Tribute to Legends of Latin Jazz" as a homage to to musicians who had an influence on him. A live CD followed in 2002, which was recorded at the Steamers Jazz Club (California).
