Alfredo Rodriguez Trio with Special Guest Ganavya Doraiswamy

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

Since his discovery by Quincy Jones at the 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival, Alfredo Rodríguez has devel­oped “an elegant yet explosive technique and command for an array of musical idioms,” says The Los Angeles Times. The pianist’s music reflects the influence of keyboard legends like Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, and Art Tatum as well the rigorous classical training of his native Havana. Rodríguez was nominated for a 2015 GRAMMY Award in the category of Best Arrangement (Instrumental or A Cappella) for the track “Guantanamera,” from his latest albumThe Invasion Parade. “He explores, cele­brates and reinvents the music of the Cuba he left behind in 2009, creating his own vibrant musical remembrance.” (George Kanzler, Hot House, April 2014) This special engagement will feature the intoxi­cating voice of Ganavya Doraiswamy.
