- The Boston Herald 
“A pianist so intense, so beautiful, and so emotive you never, ever want the music to stop”
- Savvant Music

One of the hottest young jazz pianists performing today,  Cuban-born Alfredo Rodríguez “sounds the way Monk might have sounded if he had been born in Chick Corea’s body and raised on a diet of Bach, Chopin, and Stravinsky in a Havana conservatory” [San Jose Mercury News]. At the age of only 27 years old, he has brought his dazzling, virtuoso style to impressive venues all over the world, including (two years ago) the Montalvo Arts Center, where he received standing ovations and cheers from audiences.

Born in Havana, Rodríguez is the son of a popular singer, television presenter and entertainer of the same name. Evidencing talent at a very early age, young Alfredo began his formal music education at seven. He studied classical music at some of the finest musical conservatories in Cuba, including the Conservatorio Amadeo Roldán and the Instituto Superior de Arte.  He also supplemented his education with extensive experience playing popular music in his father’s TV band since the age of 14.

All of these auspicious elements coalesced in 2006, when Rodríguez was selected to play at the Montreux Jazz Festival. While there, his virtuoso playing came to the attention of the legendary record producer Quincy Jones, who now represents him. Jones says of Rodríguez, “he is very special and I do not say that easily…I have been surrounded by the best musicians in the world my entire life and he is one of the best.”
