POLYRHYTHMS & QUAD CITY ARTS PRESENT MIGUEL ZENON

 

February 21st, POLYRHYTHMS Third Sunday Jazz Series is pleased to collaborate with Quad City Arts in presenting the Miguel Zenon Quartet in concert at the Redstone Room, in the RME on the corner of 2nd  & Main in Davenport from 6–8 pm.

The Miguel Zenon Quartet: Luis Perdomo, piano - Hans Glawischnig, bass - Henry Cole, drums.

Multiple Grammy Nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow Miguel Zenón represent a select group of musicians who have masterfully balanced and blended the often contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. Widely considered as one of the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists of his generation, he has also developed a unique voice as a composer and as a conceptualist, concentrating his efforts on perfecting a fine mix between Latin American Folkloric Music and Jazz.

Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Zenón has released nine recordings as a leader, including Identities are Changeable (2014) and the Grammy Nominated Alma Adentro (2011). As a sideman he has worked with jazz luminaries such as The SFJAZZ Collective,Charlie Haden, The Mingus Big Band, Bobby Hutcherson, David Sanchez, Danilo Perez, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner and Steve Coleman.

 

Zenón has been featured in articles on publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, as well as gracing the cover of Downbeat Magazine on two occasions (2010 and 2014). In addition, he topped both the Jazz Artist of the Yearand Alto Saxophonist categories on the 2104 Jazz Times Critics Poll and was selected as 2015 Alto Saxophonist of the Year by the Jazz Journalist Association.

 

As a composer he has been commissioned by SFJAZZ, The New York State Council for the Arts, Chamber Music America, The John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, Peak Performances, PRISM Quartet and many of his peers. Zenón has given hundreds of lectures and master classes at institutions all over the world, and is a permanent faculty member at New England Conservatory of Music. In 2011 he founded Caravana Cultural, a program which presents free-of-charge Jazz concerts in rural areas of Puerto Rico. In April 2008 Zenón received afellowship from the prestigious John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. Later that year he was one of 25 distinguished individuals chosen to receive the coveted MacArthur Fellowship, also known as the “Genius Grant”.
