JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2013 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Alfredo Rodriguez Trio at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Alfredo Rodriguez played percussion before studying piano in his native Cuba. All three parts of his sensational trio are incredibly rhythmic and they easily handled the evening's complicated, gnarly musical interchanges but they knocked me out with a gentle romantic ballad. Unfortunately, that led directly into some sort of laptop experiment and we left for the next venue. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
