Miguel Zenon: Identities at SFJAZZ Center

1 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2013-06-01 2013-06-01 35 Miguel Zenon: Identities at SFJAZZ Center As a founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective in 2004, alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón has become one of the most celebrated alto saxophonists and composers of his generation as well as a multiple Grammy nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow. Deepening his relationship with SFJAZZ as a Resident Artistic Director, Zenón presents a series of projects that showcase his ever-expanding vision as a composer inspired by West Africa and an ingenious interpreter of the folkloric and popular music of Puerto Rico. Zenón presents a West Coast premiere, his most ambitious project yet, with Identities, a song cycle for his quartet augmented by a 12-piece big band and video installation by David Dempewolf. The week closes with an evening of duos featuring Venezuelan-born pianist Luis Perdomo and Puerto Rican percussion maestro Paoli Mejias.
