Alfredo Rodriquez

Discovered by Quincy Jones at the 2006 Montreaux Jazz Festival, Cuban-born rising star Alfredo Rodríguez, 25, calls up images of legendary jazz pianists Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, and his compatriot Chucho Valdés. Collaborating with Quincy Jones, Tan Dun, and Siedah Garrett, Rodriguez composed the anthem “Better City, Better Life,” a song selected as the official theme song of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. His debut album, produced by Jones & Rodríguez, will be released on Qwest/Mack Avenue Records in the Spring of 2012. In Quincy’s words, “He is very special and I do not say that easily because I have been surrounded by the best musicians in the world my entire life and he is one of the best.”
