Description

Saxophonist and MacArthur Fellow Miguel Zenón has masterfully balanced and blended the often-contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. A song cycle for his quartet, plus big band and video, his "Identities Are Changeable" project explores the experience of Puerto Ricans who have moved to New York.

"Miguel Zenón is identifiable by his tone, which is floaty and bright and ornate…But he’s also become identifiable by the quality of ideas, his particular kind of intellectual ambition…” – The New York Times
