Along his musical voyage Jose Luis has been performing his compositions with Trios and Quartets – even bigger musical band formats - leading Afroperuvian tradition, music from the Andes and Latin America and a wide variety of styles through a personal shape nourished by different world music traditions and classical training.
Some musicians on his recordings, concerts and Tv shows: Alex Acuña, John Patitucci, Eric Marienthal, Anthony Cox, Steve Tavaglione, Arturo Sandoval, Pedro Aznar, Luis Salinas, Carlos Aguirre, Mathew Garrison.
His musical contribution in afroperuvian music has been acknowleged through two international Latin jazz Prizes in La Habana, Cuba (2000 and 2002) with his compositions “Reencuentros” and “En el rincón” based on festejo, style developed on the peruvian coast.
Chilcano, his first soloist album (1996), is an original work where Latin and Afroperuvian Jazz styles are produced with sophisticated arrengements. Mark Holston from Jazziz Magazine wrote: “José Luis Madueño's impeccable musicianship, entrancing melodic themes, and heady collaborations with a handpicked supporting cast of like-minded Latin jazz visionaries make Chilcano one extraordinary debut”. Other magazines that have shown appreciation to Madueño’s work are: Jazz Times, Latin Beat, Jam Magazine, y Tribuna Bis.
