strong>Miguel Zenon was smokin at the Triple Door with his quintet. More pictures to come.
“The Puerto Rican saxophonist, a brilliant star on the international jazz scene, and the newest faculty member at the New England Conservatory, brings his explosive new group to the main stage for his second appearance during Earshot’s opening weekend. The members of the Esta Plena Quinet include the thoughtful pianist Luis Perdomo, dynamic bassist Hans Glawischnig, standout drummer Henry Cole, and the exciting percussionist and vocalist Tito Matos.
Drummer Byron Vannoy’s Meridian opens for Zenón. A local jazz fusion outfit, the band features Vannoy and several other talented artists, including Chris Symer on bass, Kacey Evans on the keyboard, Chris Spencer on guitar, and Eric Barber on saxophones. In 2008, Meridian won the Golden Ear Award for NW Recording of the Year. “
