Share This:

Dan Ouellette, Senior Editor ZEALnyc, recently published a 5-part article featuring Pedrito, in anticipation of his collaborating with pianist Alfredo Rodriguez at Jazz Standard (February 9-10 2017).

In July 2016, when asked what was going to happen at his record release party the next night at The Heath for his new album Habana Dreams, recorded in Cuba, percussionist extraordinaire/vocalist Pedrito Martinez laughed and said, “Well, one thing is the recording and the other thing is hearing it live. We’ll have fun. We’re going to grab the crowd’s attention right away. They’ll start dancing and then everyone’s going to go crazy. What we want to do is bring a lot of energy and do a show that people will remember.”
