Lorca studied at CalArts in L.A. in the early 1990s with Albert “Tootie” Heath, Joe La Barbera, Charlie Haden and Wadada Leo Smith. He went on to work professionally with Bobby Hutcherson, Stanley Jordan, Ralph Moore, Carmen Lundy, Freddie Hubbard, Calvin Keys, Craig Handy, Kyle Eastwood, Herman Riley, Azar Lawrence, Red Holloway, Plas Johnson, John Heard, Danny Grissett, Justo Almario, Bennie Maupin, Phil Ranelin, Dave Pike, Don Menza, Hugh Masekela, Anton Schwartz, the Clayton Brothers, Anthony Wilson, Julian Lage and many others.

We pay a “guaranteed fair wage” of
$150 per musician to each musician performing
in our Friday and Saturday evening live streams
and you are the first one we look to in order

We are extremely grateful as well to the many individuals

Donate to the BBCLP at this link to further our work!
