Osmany Paredes Quartet


The Zinc’s “New Dimensions in Latin Jazz” series continues with this Havana-born pianist. Trained first by his father, the conga player Guillermo Paredes, Osmany Peredes studied at Havana’s National School of Music and worked in Enrique Jorrin’s charanga group before heading west. His muscular yet lyrically nuanced sound embodies the entire Afro-Cuban jazz tradition… and then some.
