After being a member of Eddie Palmieri’s groups for 10 years as well as recording and performing with Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, Miguel Zenon Big Band, Oscar Hernandez and Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Ricky Martin, and Tito Puente Jr among many more, Jonathan’s love for the music runs deep.
