Quincy Jones Presents Alfredo Rodriguez's NY Debut

One week from today, Alfredo Rodriguez will make his debut New York performance since defecting from Cuba in January of this year.

Don Heckman, of the Los Angeles Times wrote on his blog "[Alfredo is] an astonishing talent...who calls up images of a youthful Art Tatum, leavened with an off-center, Thelonious Monk point of view, spiced with the surging rhythmic passions of his homeland;" Quincy Jones, in a 6/9/09 interview with La Opinion claimed, "[Alfredo] is very special and I do not say that easily because been I have been surrounded by the best musicians in the world my entire life ... he is one of the best.”
