Cuban Jazz by Pianist Alfredo Rodriguez

October 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Alfredo Rodriguez’s performance style calls up images of Tatum, Jarrett, Monk, and Evans. Rodriguez moved to Los Angeles from Havana in 2009, taking a suitcase filled with music, a sweater, a pair of jeans, and nothing else. In 2014’s The Invasion Parade, he revisited various Cuban musical traditions. And in his latest, the Grammy-nominated Tocororo (2015), his story is represented by the national bird of Cuba, which if caged, dies of sadness. In this case, the bird represents the cross-pollination of his Cuban culture with the others he’s experienced through his musical journey.

Alfredo Rodriguez will appear in the Berlind Theatre on Saturday, October 21 at 8 p.m. Single tickets are $56 and can be purchased online at mccarter.org, by phone at 609.258.2787, or in person at the McCarter Ticket Office at 91 University Place in Princeton.
