Embodying proficiency and passion for both jazz and classical music, 86-year old Mr. Peña celebrates in this chronicle of his life his early beginnings as a struggling musician, his departure for foreign shores in search of a more convivial environment for his art, and his unqualified success in his various undertakings as a committed musician.

All in all he spent 30 years as the well-loved and respected bass player and arranger of the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra, and continued to compose, arrange, lecture, and perform for most of those years. After he returned to the Philippines he taught younger musicians both formally and informally, especially guitar and double bass players, and collaborated with both established and upcoming artists. A recording of his compositions, “Ugnayan,” was produced by Gerard Salonga and performed by the Global Studio Orchestra last year. “Igorot Jazz Fantasy” and “Iyo Kailan Pa Man” are among the more well-known pieces in his prolific body of work.

A Man and His Music, through its author’s straightforward anecdotal style, shows how a life dedicated to a singular passion can be lived richly and shared generously.
