“The achy precision in alto saxist Miguel Zenón’s tone was apparent from the moment he arrived in New York from Boston in the late ’90s.” – Time Out New York

Multiple Grammy® Award-nominee Miguel Zenón, also a Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow, is one of a select group of musicians who have masterfully balanced and blended the often-contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. Widely considered one of the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists of his generation, he has also developed a unique voice as a composer and as a conceptualist, concentrating his efforts on perfecting a fine mix between Latin American folkloric music and jazz. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Zenón has recorded and toured with a wide variety of musicians including Charlie Haden, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, Bobby Hutcherson and Steve Coleman and is a founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective. Zenón was last featured in Portland as part of PDX Jazz At The Mission in November 2012, and returns to the city in support of his 9th and latest release Identities are Changeable, a groundbreaking project focusing on the cultural identity of the Puerto Rican community in the United States, to be released in November 2014.
