The Miguel Zenon Quartet Tours His "Tipico"

Multiple Grammy nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur fellow Miguel Zenón represents a select group of musicians who have masterfully balanced the often contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. He is widely considered to be one of the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists of his generation. He has also developed a unique voice as a composer and 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 bandleader, and will be touring his tenth and forthcoming album, Tipico, while at ArtPower. Tickets For Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at The Loft at UCSD.
