Discovered at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2006 by Quincy Jones, Cuban-born Rodriguez is a young pianist of astonishing virtuosity and imagination who invites comparison to legendary jazz pianists like Keith Jarret, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum, Bill Evans and his compatriot Chuco Valdez. Schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana, Rodriguez's riveting artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as by his Cuban and jazz roots.
