Pete Escovedo
Pete Escovedo
Legendary Percussionist Pete Escovedo is an artist who broke down the barriers between Smooth Jazz, Salsa, Latin Jazz and contemporary music. His name has been synonymous in the music industry for more than 50 years. Pete is known worldwide for his live performances, session work and solo albums.

As a young boy he would sit on the steps of nightclubs and watch musicians play. Music became his outlet. When he was 15 years old he began to also sketch and paint on wood or cardboard. Anything he could get his hands on, he would start to draw.

Pete did not know that his love for music and art combined would change his life forever. And this is how it began.

Pete Escovedo, toured internationally with the legendary guitarist, Carlos Santana, for five years and performed on three Santana albums: Moonflower, Oneness and Inner Secrets. Mr. Escovedo left Santana to follow in the musical footsteps of his mentor, the late great Tito Puente, who influenced his music and decision to form his own orchestra consisting of a five-person horn section with strong rhythm and percussion personnel.

In 2013, Pete Escovedo, was honored with a Jazz Tribute Award at the Los Angeles Jazz Society's 30th Anniversary. He performed at the White House for President Obama and was requested to return for a repeat performance.

July 2017, Mr. Escovedo will celebrate 62 years in the entertainment business and his 82nd birthday.
