Been meaning to post about this guy for a little while now. Peter and I caugut Miguel Zenón in concert at Yoshi's a couple of weeks ago.
We were simply blown away.
A lot of the music was from his new CD Jibaro. Peter bought the CD after the show, and I borrowed it a week later. I've now decided to by it myself (and everything else by the guy). This is the first set of music in 3 years where I've actually been really challenged at teasing apart the polyrythms. At the time, the concert was so good that I thought I wouldn't get the same energy coming across from the studio version. I was wrong.
He's coming again to the Monterey Jazz festival later this year. Woohoo! :)
