Cuban artist Alfredo Rodriguez made his breakthrough at a 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival concert, where he cast his spell on Quincy Jones. The pianist thereafter became a protégé of that famous friend of the Festival. And what he’s done since! On the 2014 album Tocororo, the virtuoso is surrounded by Richard Bona, Ibrahim Maalouf, and even Ibeyi. This record, produced by Quincy Jones, is titled in reference to the bird that cannot survive in a cage. A metaphor for his own desire for freedom, he who left his country to live by his music in the United States... Compared to Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, Alfredo Rodriguez mesmerizes with his percussive and expressive style of play, with a sublime Cuban touch. Released this year, The Little Dream is a new demonstration of his mind-blowing talent!
