Gomez is a native of Puerto Rico who was raised in New York City. This was the first-ever honorary doctorate granted at the college’s new international campus in Spain. The award was presented by Larry Simpson, Berklee senior vice president for academic affairs, at a celebratory concert at the Teatro Martin i Soler in the Palau de les Arts, home of the college’s Valencia campus.

"I am profoundly proud to receive this honor from Berklee College of Music, one of the most prestigious music schools in the world,” said Gomez in his acceptance remarks. “Of course, I need to thank Mr. Roger Brown, Larry Simpson, Brian Cole, Matt Marvuglio and Marco Pignataro for making this happen. It is a very special night.”

The concert starred Gómez performing alongside faculty and student musicians from Boston and Valencia. These included flutist and composer Matt Marvuglio, dean of Berklee’s performance division; saxophonist Marco Pignataro, managing director of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute; bassist Steve Bailey, chair of the college’s bass department; guitarist and bandleader Dave Fiuczynski, professor of guitar; and vibraphonist and composer Victor Mendoza, director of the college’s master’s program in contemporary studio performance. The concert was produced by Marvuglio and Mendoza.

“Eddie is among the greatest living jazz musicians and a titan in the history of the jazz double bass. His music and technique has influenced jazz musicians and bassists from almost every genre,” commented Simpson. “He has also shown a serious commitment to education, dedicating time to teaching at institutions including the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music and Berklee, despite his very active performance schedule.”
