Additional Information

In the spring of 2012, the remarkable career of saxophonist and composer Miguel Zenón took another unexpected turn with his latest Sunnyside CD release: Rayuela, a beautiful and provocative collaboration with the French pianist Laurent Coq, inspired by iconoclastic Argentine writer Julio Cortázar’s 1963 novel of the same name.


“This masterpiece has long provided me with an immense amount of inspiration and ideas,” says Miguel Zenón, “forging a possibility for what art could be: a medium of boundless freedom, both for the creator and for the audience. The narrative in Rayuela takes place both in Paris and Buenos Aires, and it was in­deed this ‘French/Latin American’ connection that ignited the idea for a collaboration between Laurent and myself…Each composition is meant to represent a character or episode from the book, and our ap­proaches varied greatly: from direct translations of words (or in some cases letters) into musical terms; to impressions on the feelings inspired by a specific literary passage. What is meant to be consistent throughout the music is our love and admiration for every page of this very unique piece of literature and our desire for this music to transmit these feelings in an honest way.”
