Javier Santiago is one of the hottest, most in-demand young pianists in the Bay Area. He has played with some of the top rising stars in the international jazz scene including Theo Croker, Kenneth Whalum, John Raymond, Yosvany Terry and Irwin Hall.

Javier has become a notable force in both the beat and hip-hop scene as well as the jazz world.  His debut album, Phoenix (2018) on Ropeadope Records was named #1 Jazz Album of the Year by Vinyl Me, Please. It features some of the great jazz musicians of our time – Nicholas Payton, Dayna Stephens, Nir Felder and John Raymond.

In addition to being a pianist and sideman, Santiago is also an accomplished educator, arranger and producer. He is an alumnus of The Brubeck Institute Fellowship Program, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC, a finalist in the 2015 American Jazz Pianist competition, and a recipient of the 2016 McKnight Fellowship for Musicians. He was also selected to participate in the 14th Annual Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program in 2011.
