About the event

This special event will begin with music performed by Muñoz, segue to a Q+A about his remarkable career, continue with a 15-20 minute solo set, and conclude with a book signing for his memoir A Fool’s Journey; To The Beach Boys & Beyond.

CARLI MUÑOZ is a pianist, composer, writer and visual artist who had the rare distinction of excelling in the mainstream of pop music and jazz. In 1971 he joined the Beach Boys, and left them in 1981 to pursue a career in cinema and jazz performing. Recordings and performances followed with top jazz artists such as George Benson, Les McCann, and others. Muñoz’s own works followed, culminating in his 2018 release Follow Me to a wide acclaim. Since 1998, Carli has performed live nightly at his venue, Carli’s Fine Bistro & Piano, in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“To me, Carli is like several different artists in one. There’s the pianist, the composer/lyricist, vocalist, arranger, producer, but then there’s the poet of how to speak with people, how to listen and hear them, how to be kind, how to create a gracious environment, how to make magic. Carli is a kind of angel, a pioneer, a rogue, and a mystic. He is the most highly original kind of human, who never looks over his shoulder for a sense of direction. His soul is his guide.”

—Benny Green, jazz pianist

A Fool's Journey keeps you reading—uncovering a deeper meaning, opening doors to the known and unknown. One can sense a meandering and soulful spirit in Carli’s journey of life. Carli is a larger-than-life composer piano player that you just step back and say: Where does he come from?”

—Roman Klun, Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer
