All About Jazz
All the while, native Panamanian and deep historical African gestures hold the music in a secure place, like the stilts on an elevated beach house. When you go to this place of Perez’ invention, you’ll want to stay.

Wall Street Journal
Arc of RediscoveryRather, it embodies what Mr. Shorter, his greatest mentor, advised. “Wayne taught me to create a unity in everything I do that reflects my intent. And to write music that sounds like the world as I imagine it can be.”

Blogcritics
Perez says that Panama is “a place where a lot of influences from all over the world come together.” It is a land of multiple traditions, and it was Perez’s feeling that the music on his album should mirror those traditions.
