SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA  •  The Broad Stage  •  Ongoing

The Cuban-born Rodríguez was schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana and is known to call up images of legendary jazz pianists such as Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum and his compatriot Chucho Valdés.

Discovered by legendary producer Quincy Jones at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Rodríguez’s artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as by his Cuban and jazz roots. "He is without a doubt one of the best young pianists I’ve ever seen,” Jones has said. "With the enormous skills he already possesses, his potential is limitless."
