Puerto Rico Jazz: Friday, September 21, Saxophonist and composer Miguel Zenón releases Yo soy la Tradición

Saxophonist and composer Miguel Zenón releases Yo soy la Tradición – his eleventh album as a leader and fourth for Miel Music – this FRIDAY, September 21, 2018.  The recording, commissioned by the David and Reva Logan Center for the Arts and the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, is a collection of eight works for alto saxophone and string quartet which feature Zenón and the Chicago-based, internationally renowned Spektral Quartet.


They celebrate the CD this Friday (9/21) with a benefit concert for hurricane relief at Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, Chicago.  On Saturday (9/22), they're at Ripon College in Ripon, WI.  In November they'll be in Amherst and Boston, MA as well as Washington, DC.

Editors' Pick: "While folkloric in its origins, the music here is decidedly modern, a complex, multi-layered weave of new music and progressive jazz that marks a high point of Zenón’s ever-evolving oeuvre. It all comes together beautifully. Yo Soy La Tradición makes a profound statement about finding common ground between seemingly disparate musical genres and discovering the spiritual source of one’s artistic identity." – Ed Enright, DownBeat 

"...not only a sophisticated delight but, for this listener, a genuine education.... Yo Soy La Tradición certainly lives up to its promise: this album is filled with fascinating music, marvelously realized and unlike anything else I know." – Michael Ullman, Arts Fuse

Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any way you may take away me from that service? Thanks! casino blackjack
