Grammy® Award-nominee Miguel Zenón, also a Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow, represents a select group of musicians who have masterfully balanced and blended the often-contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Zenón has recorded and toured with a wide variety of musicians including Charlie Haden, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, Bobby Hutcherson and Steve Coleman and is a founding member of the groundbreaking SFJAZZ Collective. His latest release, Oye!!! Live in Puerto Rico features the debut recording of The Rhythm Collective, an ensemble first put together in 2003 for a month long tour of West Africa. Zenón was last featured in Portland as part of PDX Jazz At The Mission in November 2012.
