At the age of 13, Esteban Castro became the youngest ever winner of the Parmigiani Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition. In March 2017 he took part in the Montreux Jazz Academy adventure featuring prestigious mentors like Marcus Miller and Yaron Herman. This young virtuoso was impressive for his technique, but also for his spontaneous and unbelievably inventive playing during jam sessions. Now 14, the pianist and composer originally from New York has won numerous other prizes, such as the ASCAP Foundation's Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award, and the Downbeat Student Awards for Best Compositions and Best Soloist. He is currently a scholarship student at the Manhattan School of Music, and performs with the Jazz House Big Band. The three albums he has already recorded are flooded with creative energy, which will wash through the Club with a vengeance!
