Newport Jazz Festival: Miguel Zenon In Concert

Airs Tuesday, March 20 at 9:00 p.m. Lately, the alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón has been listening to some of his parents' favorite music. That is, he's adapted a handful of classic popular songs from his native Puerto Rico for his jazz quartet. And on his forthcoming album Alma Adentro, he even contracted his friend Guillermo Klein to write backing arrangements for a 10-piece woodwind section. Lush and verdant — like the tropical isle which inspired them — the charts see a rare public performance at Newport's central Quad Stage.  Recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival on Sunday, August 7.
