Zz LCC Presents - 2019 - Alfredo Rodriguez & Pedrito Martinez Duo

Zz LCC Presents - 2019 - Alfredo Rodriguez & Pedrito Martinez Duo
Saturday, March 9

These Grammy®-nominated virtuosos reunite for a high-octane Cuban-born, New York-based brand of modern Latin jazz. Pianist Rodríguez was discovered by Quincy Jones, and percussionist Martinez has performed with artists such as Eddie Palmieri, Paul Simon and Wynton Marsalis.

Tickets start at $20.

Alfredo Rodríguez was born into a musical family, his father a popular singer and TV host. A child prodigy, he studied classical piano at the prestigious Conservatorio Amadeo Roldán and Instituto Superior de Arte while playing popular music in his father’s orchestra by night. His riveting artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as it is by his Afro-Cuban and jazz roots. While performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2006 he was discovered by his future mentor and producer, the legendary Quincy Jones.

Pedrito Martinez honed his craft on the streets of Havana, learning the deeply rooted percussion and vocal style of Afro-Cuban folkloric and religious music. Nearly a decade Rodriguez’s senior, the master percussionist and vocalist arrived in the U.S. in 1998, was soon awarded First Place at the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz International Afro-Latin Hand Drum Competition and appeared in the documentary film “Calle 54.” He then co-founded a Latin fusion group, Yerba Buena, with which he toured extensively and recorded several successful albums. Pedrito has performed or recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Angelique Kidjo, Chucho Valdés and James Taylor. He has been leader of his own quartet since 2005 with a Grammy®-nominated album released in 2013 on Motéma Music.

Rodríguez and Martinez share a natural chemistry that makes for a galvanizing musical experience when they come together. Their first duo album, “Duologue” (released Feb. 1), finds the pair exploring a range of moods and influences, from Cuban classics to collaborative original compositions to a number of unexpected favorites. Read a review of the album on NPR's First Listen by Felix Contreras, host of Alt.Latino.
