By Lucía Burbano December 5, 2018
“Some of the musicians I met at Berklee Valencia have become my colleagues and collaborators.” – Alexey León Reyes M.M. ‘14
Alexey León Reyes hasn’t slowed down since earning his master’s degree from Berklee Valencia in 2014. The Cuban-born saxophonist and flutist has racked up top prizes at jazz festivals around the world, helped students achieve their musical goals as a teacher at Sedajazz in Valencia, and is about to release his third album, Okudzhava for My Mother, a homage to the Russian poet and songwriter Bulat Okudzhava. We recently caught up with him to discuss the inspiration behind his new project, and his career as an artist and educator.
