O’s Notes: Sounds Of Space is Cuban pianist Alfredo Rodrígues’ debut recording and it is good. It is co -produced by his mentor Quincy Jones. The music is an instrumental narrative of Alfredo’s experiences, a mix of enthusiastic, warm and even romantic moments. The program has 11 neobop jazz-fusion songs with a lot of Latin spices all arranged and composed by Rodrígues. He successfully pays homage to Cuban and American jazz masters while establishing his own space. As with many people who’ve been ushered in by Jones, we expect Alfredo to be making memorable sounds for quite a while!
