Pete Rodriguez returns to Le Poisson Rouge
Pete Rodriguez Quintet
w/ Luis Perdomo (piano), Ricky Rodriguez (bass), Rudy Royston (drums), and Robert Quintero (percussion)
Trumpeter, vocalist and percussionist Pete Rodríguez carries the bloodline of Nuyorican salsa, just as he takes the tradition of Afro-Cuban jazz to new places. The son of renowned salsero Pete “El Conde” Rodríguez and godson of Fania Records bandleader Johnny Pacheco, the younger Rodríguez revisits his father’s legacy on Caminando con Papi. Rodriguez sang on Tito Puente’s Grammy-award winning Mambo Birdland; as an instrumentalist, he’s appeared with legends including Celia Cruz, Eddie Palmieri, Chico O’Farrill and Bebo Valdez. On Wednesday, January 29th he will make a welcome comeback to the sacred ground of the old Village Gate, where he often played “Monday Nights Salsa Meets Jazz” – now LE POISSON ROUGE – for an all-star evening celebrating his latest Destiny Records release, CAMINANDO CON PAPI, his third album as bandleader featuring featuring LUIS PERDOMO (piano), RICKY RODRIGUEZ (bass), RUDY ROYSTON (drums) & ROBERT QUINTERO (percussion).
