Faculty Member
Alexis Cuadrado is a faculty member at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC, and teaches worldwide as a guest lecturer. An award-winning composer, producer, bandleader, bassist and educator; Barcelona-born Alexis Cuadrado has become one of the most sought-after musicians in the New York scene. NPR music says: “Listen to Cuadrado’s compositions and you’ll find every reason to take him seriously.” NY magazine: "His intricate and sharply defined compositions show that he’s tapped into something much deeper." Cuadrado's compositions show a unique voice that draws from the crossover of jazz, flamenco and new music, exploring the confluence of the Spanish and American cultures, as well as embracing a deep commitment to comment on social issues. His recent output is a restless exploration of cross-disciplinary works that embrace poetry, film, radio and design.
