About the Album

"Tainos Y Caribes" is the first track from Miguel Zenón's album Música de Las Américas, out via Miel Music. Featuring his longstanding quartet – saxophonist/composer Zenón with pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Hans Glawischnig, and drummer Henry Cole – Música de Las Américas represents a broadening of scope and ambition for Zenón, who is best known for combining cutting-edge modernism with the folkloric and traditional music of Puerto Rico. In realizing such a wide-ranging project, Zenón engaged the illustrious Puerto Rican ensemble Los Pleneros de La Cresta to contribute their unmistakable plena sound to the album, with additional contributions by master musicians Paoli Mejías on percussion, Daniel Díaz on congas, and Victor Emmanuelli on barril de bomba.
