Pablo Masis is a New York City-based trumpet player, composer, and educator whose versatile musical voice spans multiple improvisational styles from lively swing to contemplative somber ballads.  With four albums of his own music, his compositional style reflects the many locations in his life that he has experienced, traveled through, and called home.

“I thoroughly enjoyed Pablo Masis' new album offering. A few things stand out to me - the fantastic ensemble sound, the free-wheeling solos, and a sense of not knowing what is to come. Each track presents its own style, ranging from somber and regal to joyous swing. The suite inspired by Masis' travels to Kabul shines bright with evocative melodies and constant invention.”

-Grammy Award winning Trumpeter/Composer Nadje Noordhuis
