Nominated for a 2018 Best Latin Jazz Album Grammy, Miguel Zenón masterfully balances and blends innovation and tradition. A Guggenheim and MacArthur fellow, he is widely regarded as one of the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists of his generation, as well as a unique composer and conceptualist.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Zenón strives to perfect a fine mix of Latin American folkloric music and jazz. He has performed with a number of jazz luminaries and will be joined in this quartet by Venezuelan pianist Luis Perdomo, Austrian bassist Hans Glawischnig, and fellow Puerto Rican drummer Henry Cole.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
