What to Expect
As a soloist my sound can be compared to Warren Hill, Tom Scott, Dave Koz, Eric Marienthal. My performance is very adequate as background music for romantic or business dinning. My repertoire includes many jazz standards such as My Funny Valentine, Girl from Ipanema as well as boleros such as Besame Mucho. I am also active performing in churches around South Florida as a freelance playing saxophone & wind controllers.
Melvin Quinones, also known as Melvin Llord, is the CEO &; Founder of MyMusicTalk Corporation, one of the most revolutionary musicians communities online.
He started studying saxophone by age 11, with the idea of someday playing in the local church's band. He never made it to that group, but that didn't discourage him from his passion for music. By the age of 15, he was recording music with local bands and slowly gaining popularity as one of the best sax players in western Puerto Rico. At 17, his talent was discovered by Andrew Ruiz, one of the most popular band directors in Puerto Rico, who quickly extended him an invitation to play with international Latin star Wilkins. At a young age, he shared the stage with Puerto Rico’s finest artists, such as Marc Anthony, Ednita Nazario and Gilberto Santarosa, among others.
He joined the 248th Army Band at 19. He played for 7 years and traveled to many states and countries. Melvin has more than 25 years of experience as a Music Producer, Song writer, Sax and Keyboard Player. He is working on his first production as a soloist, featuring Grammy award nominees “The Negroni Trio”, Samuel Gali, Milton Sesenton, Carlomagno Araya, Oscar Stagnaro, Richie Ray and one of the nation’s top recording guitarist, Mr. Ramon Stagnaro (Celine Dione, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, etc).
