Miguel Zenón Quartet

Alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón is a multiple Grammy Nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow and one of the most influential saxophonists of his generation. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Zenón has built a distinguished career as a leader and has also toured or recorded with SFJAZZ Collective, Charlie Haden, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, David Sánchez and Danilo Pérez, among many others.

“Exactly how saxophonist Miguel Zenon makes a music at once complex yet readily accessible remains one of the mysteries of his art. For Zenon offers no compromises when it comes to the intricacies of his lines, the irregularities of his rhythms or the bracing originality of his tunes. Yet audiences flock to this work…” – Chicago Tribune

“They have become one hell of a band, each contributing an important part of the whole.” — NPR
