Miguel Zenon
At the dawn of the second decade of his career, alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón has established himself as one of the most sophisticated and stylish players of the new millennium. In a very short time, Zenón has made his mark as a composer, band leader, educator, and jazz advocate. He has performed and recorded with scores of the scene's most prominent musicians as leader, side man and member of the groundbreaking SFJAZZ Collective

, where he is the sole founding member remaining with the group.

Lawrence Peryer spoke with Zenón recently, where the saxophonist discusses the nexus point where jazz and the traditional musics of his native Puerto Rico meet, in particular on Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook (2011), the saxophonist's latest release on Marsalis Music; his lengthy association with SFJAZZ Collective, whose latest project is an homage to R&B/Soul singer/songwriter Stevie Wonder
