Flier for Afro Cuban Jazz at BeanRunner

Afro-Cuban Jazz

“Rodriguez mines Nuyorican musical veins and jazz lodes, ultimately mixing his finds together to create a form of music that’s loyal to both camps yet highly original and completely mutable.” – All About Jazz

The son of renowned salsero Pete “El Conde” Rodríguez and godson of Johnny Pacheco, Pete Rodríguez carries the bloodline of Nuyorican salsa royalty as he takes the tradition of Afro-Cuban jazz to new and adventurous places.

By age 19, Rodríguez was musical director of his father’s band. As a vocalist, he sang on Tito Puente’s Grammy-award winning Mambo Birdland. As an instrumentalist, he’s appeared with legends including Celia Cruz, Chico O’Farrill, Bebo Valdez and Eddie Palmieri, including performing on the Brian Lynch/Eddie Palmieri Project’s Grammy-winning release, Simpatico. Now, as a bandleader, he has recorded five critically albums.
