Columbus, Ohio - State Auto Insurance Companies - corporate sponsor of an evening with Alfredo Rodriguez. Rodriguez, hailed as one of the most prolific and gifted jazz pianists of the 21st century, will be performing at the Lincoln Theater in Columbus on May 4. Born in Havana, Cuba, the son of a popular singer, television presenter and entertainer of the same name, Rodriguez began his formal music education at seven. Percussion, not piano, was his first choice. “But…to choose what I wanted I had to wait until I was 10,” he explains. “So I picked piano. By the time I could actually switch to percussion, I knew the piano was my path.” Rodriguez has worked with producer Quincy Jones, who co-produced the album Sounds of Space with him, and has become a key player in his career.
