Claudio Roditi was born May 28th, 1946 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He began his musical studies when he was just five years old. His native Brazilian music upbringing almost took a back seat as he became enamoured with jazz and heard recordings of Louis Armstrong, Harry James and other American trumpeters. By the time he was 13, thanks to an America uncle’s record collection, he became familiar with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis. “My uncle must have had the best jazz record collection in the whole of Brazil at that time. I use to listen to them at his house, particularly Charlie Parker and Miles. It was just the sounds that registered with me; I didn’t know what it was or what any of the tunes were – I just liked the music.” At the age of twenty, he was named a finalist in the International Jazz Competition in Vienna, and the following year, moved to Mexico City where he was active on the contemporary music scene. He relocated to Boston in 1970 and studied at studied at the Berklee School of Music in 1970 and 71. Later he joined the faculty of the School of Contemporary Music and rounded out his schedule with club and concert performances.  He is known for his warm, fluid sound combining post bop and Brazilian elements. A Grammy nominee, he has recorded a dozen albums as a leader.
