EDITORS’ NOTES

Alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón and his quartet draw on vast common experience to execute music of harrowing difficulty on Típico. On “Academia,” Zenón and pianist Luis Perdomo tackle unison lines that seem all but impossible in their fast-shifting polyrhythmic detail. Bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Henry Cole are able to sound relaxed as they attend to every shifting meter in these complex pieces. Zenón covers rich and varied compositional ground, informed by his Puerto Rican heritage and his jazz immersion in equal measure.
