Miguel Zenon Quartet (USA) with Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra - VIVID Sydney Event

  • The Basement 7 Macquarie Pl Sydney, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

Following on from their recent Sold out Sydney Festival appearance, the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra teams up with Miguel Zenon, one of the worlds most celebrated saxophonists and his quartet from New York for a concert of epic proportions.

Blending the often contradictory poles of innovation and tradition, Miguel Zenon has a unique voice as a composer and conceptualists, marrying the rich traditions of Latin American folkloric music and jazz.

Widely considered amongst the most ground breaking and influential saxophonists of his generation, Zenon topped both the Jazz Artist of the Year and Alto Saxophonist categories on the 2104 Jazz Times Critics Poll.

Zenon's work is inspired by themes of cultural identity and place, seamlessly fusing irresistible rhythms with intricate orchestral arrangements. Dynamic, audacious and intensely powerful, the six-part orchestral epic will be reimagined by Sydney's Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra and Zenon's own long-time quartet, featuring some of the leading musicians in contemporary jazz.
