Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook


Guggenheim and MacArthur 'Genuis' grants-winning, Grammy-nominated alto saxophonist, composer and arranger Miguel Zenón is a rising star handpicked by Branford Marsalis for his label's roster. Interpreting popular songs is part of the stock in trade of a jazz musician. Now, on Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook (his fifth for the label), his new recording of classic Puerto Rican songs, Zenón brings that jazz tradition home - his home.

Comprised of ten songs by five of the most of the most important Puerto Rican songwriters in history, Bobby Capó, Tite Curet Alonso, Pedro Flores, Rafael Hernández, and Sylvia Rexach, who Zenón refers to as 'the George Gershwins, Cole Porters and Jerome Kerns of Puerto Rican song,' Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook illustrates the musical and cultural impact these songs have had.
