The pianist and composer Polo Ortí studied at the Conservatories of Music in the Canary Islands, Madrid, and Valencia. He also graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston and received private lessons from his idol, musician Lyle Mays (Pat Metheny Group).

In addition to being a brilliant interpreter, he was a professor at the Conservatory of Music in the Canary Islands, based in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, for seven years. Previously, he taught at the Creative School in Madrid and the Musìcs Workshop in Barcelona and has conducted numerous courses, jazz seminars, and master classes both within and outside of Spain.

In 1990, Gary Burton included three of Ortí's musical compositions on his album "Reunion," where musicians of the stature of Pat Metheny, Mitchel Forman, or Peter Erskine also participated. These songs first appeared on the US Billboard Jazz chart.

In 2011, Polo Ortí released his latest album, "Boiling Earth," with his band Polo Ortí Group. That same year, he recorded another album with the Japanese singer and pianist Satomi Morimoto, called "Fuga Dos." The live performances of this album culminated in several concerts in the Canary Islands and a tour in Tokyo, Japan.
