This new album features Mexican jazz music for piano and saxophone performed by Nup Duet, which consists of Ernesto Ramos and Felipe Gordillo. Born in Mexico City Ernesto began his musical studies at the age of 8 playing Clarinet in the Xochimilco Youth Symphony where he began his development as a musician. He began his formal studies in Clarinet at the Superior School of Music but after a few years changed to the Saxophone studying at the Jazz Workshop. Since then Ernesto has become one of his country’s greatest Jazz musicians. He has participated in various international jazz festivals such as the International Jazz Festival Acapulco, Jazz Festival Tonic Guadalajara, Jazz Festival Queretaro, and others. Felipe Gordillo’s musical history begins in his childhood. He grew up listening to marimba on his father’s records from Chiapas, his older brother’s rock, and classical music. His mother enrolled him in the National School of Music after noticing his early talent- he was able to improvise piano chords without having had any previous training. He began by studying the Russian piano method, and fell in love with the instrument. Today, he performs all over the world as a soloist and as a part of jazz ensembles. He is also an avid teacher, and presents masterclasses for young musicians across the globe.
