- Jazz Guitarist, Percussionist, Composer and Educator
Ermesc Gonzalez is an honor graduate from the well known Aaron's Copland School of Music at Queens College in New York City. He has been playing guitar and latin percussion since 1992, combining two very different instruments which gives him the opportunity to mix melody, harmony and improvisation with a strong rhythm foundation; this has created a very unique and colorful concept in his way of playing.

Now, Ermesc presents his first CD Album "INTROSPECTION", released on April 19 2010, presenting some of his compositions in a jazz trio format with exquisite melodies, deep melodic improvisations and a rich harmony concept.
