Alfredo Rodriguez is fond of saying that music has been his life since he was very young. The thing is, he’s still very young. But the story of this 24-year-old pianist’s daring defection from Cuba, his uncanny virtuosity (enough to pique the interest of Quincy Jones) and his all-hands-on-deck enthusiasm at the keyboard indicate that music will be his life’s work for as long as his fingers can find their way to the ivory.
Tickets are $25 and available online at www.jazzbakery.org and at the door the night of the concert.
This performance is made possible in part by a Culver City Performing Arts Grant with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
