Miguel Zenón, whose alto saxophone and quartet make their Marsalis Music debut on Ceremonial, is a stellar example of the blends of energy, passion, intellect and spirit that ensures the music's continued relevance and growth. Originally from Puerto Rico, this dazzling young musician has been hailed as "a bright, new jazz talent" by The Boston Globe. He is quickly becoming a central figure in the new Latin jazz movement as he effortlessly blends bebop with the extraordinary complex rhythms of Latin jazz. Miguel Zenón is a tour de force in contemporary jazz! Zenon's quartet includes Luis Perdomo on piano, Hans Gawischinig on bass, and Anotonio Sanchez on drums.
