Carlos Henriquez

Jazz bassist Carlos Henriquez was born in the Bronx, New York in 1979. At a young age, he studied music, playing guitar through junior high school. Enrolling in the Juilliard School’s Music Advancement Program, he switched his focus to the bass. While attending the LaGuardia High School of Music & Arts and Performing Arts , he joined the LaGuardia Concert Jazz Ensemble. In 1996, the ensemble won first place in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and Festival. Just after he left high school, Carlos Henriquez joined the Wynton Marsalis Septet and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in 1998. Since then, he has toured and recorded with many artists including Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Wonder, Chucho Valdez, Willie Nelson, Paco De Lucia, Tito Puente, the Marsalis Family, and many others, appearing as a sideman on more than 25 albums. In 2008, he became a member of the music faculty at the Bienen School of Music, and two years later, served as the music director of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s cultural exchange with the Cuban Institute of Music with Chucho Valdez. He released his first album, The Bronx Pyramid, in 2015, followed two years later by Dizzy Con Clave.
