REVIEW: Alfredo Rodriguez, 'Tocororo,' Mack Avenue Records >>

Pianist/composer Alfredo Rodriguez, 30, has outdone himself. His 2011 'Sounds of Space' debut was promising. His 2014 'The Invasion Parade' dissected his Cuban cultural influences into slivers of modernism. 'Tocororo' (Mack Avenue Records), though, beats all. In purposely collaborating with musicians from France, Lebanon, Cameroon, Spain and India, his new-found world-jazz reaches heights unimaginable for the 15-year old kid so taken with Keith Jarrett's 'The Koln Concert.'
