"This music is inspired by the history of the American continent: not only before European colonization, but also by what's happened since-cause and effect," says Miguel Zenón of his latest album of all original works, Música de Las Américas. The music grew out of Zenón's passion for the history of the American continent, and the resulting album pays tribute to it's diverse cultures while also challenging modern assumptions about who and what "America" is... Featuring his longstanding quartet of 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.
