About The Rodriguez Brothers

The Rodriguez Brothers are co-led by pianist/composer Robert and trumpeter/composer Michael. They were born in New York City and grew up in Miami. Inspired by their father who is a drummer, The Rodriguez Brothers began their musical training at a very young age and continued their studies throughout high school at the New World School of the Arts. Both Robert and Michael received full scholarships to the University of Miami. Michael finished his Bachelors at the New School for Jazz Studies in NYC and Robert soon followed after receiving his Bachelors in Jazz studies at the University of Miami. Since their arrival in NYC, The Rodriguez Brothers have individually worked as sidemen for Roy Haynes, Charlie Haden, Ray Barretto, Eddie Palmieri, David Sanchez, Wynton Marsalis, Joe Locke, Carla Bley, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Bob Minzter, Harry Connick Jr., Christian McBride, Richard Bona and Quincy Jones.

The Rodriguez Brothers band was formed in 2002 when they released their premiere CD Introducing The Rodriguez Brothers. The music for this recording consisted of original compositions influenced by Afro-Cuban and traditional jazz elements. Their second recording was Conversations in 2007 followed by Mood Swing in 2010. Impromtu (2015) is their third release. The group has performed at many prestigious venues and festivals including the JVC Festival at Bryant Park, Syracuse Jazz Festival, Iceland Jazz Festival, George Wein's Newport Jazz Festival, Jazz Baltica, Monterey Jazz Festival, the Blue Note Jazz Club, The Jazz Standard and Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
