Multiple Grammy-nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow Miguel Zenón is widely considered among the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists of his generation, representing a select few musicians who masterfully balanced and blended the often-contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and resident of New York, he developed a unique voice as a composer and as a conceptualist, concentrating on perfecting a fine mix between Latin American Folkloric music and jazz. Zenón has topped both the Jazz Artist of the Year and Alto Saxophonist categories on the JazzTimes Critics Poll (2014).
