Alfredo Rodríguez's fourth studio album was recorded in just two days, with a majority of the songs being done impressively in one take. Over the past decade he has gone from a young local Cuban artist to a globally recognized Grammy®-nominee. As jazz music sees a resurgence in younger audiences, Rodríguez is leading the way for the new wave of Cuban musicians.
Cuban born pianist Alfredo Rodrguez literally lived his music while in his native land. Coming to the United States has given Rodriguez a new perspective and a second chance at creativity that few artists are smart enough to embrace on the first go-round. The Invasion Parade celebrates different styles of Cuban music seldom recorded in the United States along with a wonderful lineup of musicians including a nice cameo from Esperanza Spalding.
Silvio Rodríguez is one of the founders of the "Nueva Trova" sound. This was a fusion of musical genres that originated in the 1960s in revolutionary age Cuba.
