Cuban pianist and composer Alfredo Rodriguez has become a globally recognized Grammy-nominee with multiple critically-acclaimed releases on Mack Avenue Records since being discovered and produced by the great Quincy Jones. Rodríguez is leading the way for the new wave of Cuban musicians, including past collaborators Ibeyi and Pedrito Martinez, exposing the rich musical history of Cuba to a wider audience. Not only does he infuse his music with jazz and messages of hope for other young immigrants, but aims to incorporate philosophies of improvisation into everyday life. (www.alfredomusic.com)
