Miguel Zenón Quartet with the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra - MIJF Event

  • Merlyn Theatre 113 Sturt St Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

Widely considered among the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists of his generation, Miguel Zenón has also developed a unique voice as a composer and conceptualist.  One of over one million New York residents of Puerto Rican origin, he marries the rich traditions of Latin American folkloric music and jazz.

Zenón's audacious new work Identities are Changeable is inspired by themes of cultural identity and place, seamlessly fusing irresistible rhythms with intricate orchestral arrangements.

Dynamic and intensely powerful, this six-part epic will be brought to life by Sydney’s Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra and Zenón’s own long-time quartet, featuring some of the leading musicians in contemporary jazz.
