This event date has passed.

A sensation of the 2010 Festival Noon Series, Rodríguez is back headlining the first Jazz Club of the 2012 Festival. This time he is bringing his Trio fresh from their recent collaboration with McCoy Tyner at New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club. Schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana, Rodriguez’s riveting artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as by his Cuban and jazz roots. Discovered by Quincy Jones, the two co-wrote music for the song Better City, Better Life, which was chosen as the official theme song of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

Joining Rodríguez are Peter Slavov, bass, and Francisco Mela, drums.
