Alfredo Rodríguez Brings 'The Little Dream' into Our Studio, on Afternoon Jazz

Mar 13, 2018

While he has many fascinating stories to tell, pianist and composer Alfredo Rodríguez is all about the music.  

During his recent visit to our performance studio at WBGO, Rodríguez touched on stories of his life in Cuba and his migration to the United States. There's also his life-changing 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival encounter with Quincy Jones, which has led to “Q” producing two of his recordings for Mack Avenue, including his latest, The Little Dream.

But through it all, Rodríguez — joined by drummer and lifelong compatriot Michael Olivera and their mutual friend, Brazilian bassist Munir Hossn — make the music the real story.
