The Grammy Nominated artist Jay Rodriguez has been part of the fabric of the new York music scene since the mid 80’s.

A truly seasoned master composer, arranger and instrumentalist.



He has worked with greats like Celia Cruz, Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barretto , Paquito D Rivera, the Gil Evans Band, Prince, Miles Davis,Fred Wesley, Chucho Valdez , Cindy Blackman, Doc Cheatham, David Murray, James Blood Ulmer,Alex Blake, Victor Jones, Roy Hargrove , Alex Blake , Victor Jones,Musiq Soulchild, Teruo Nakamura ,Craig Harris, Amiri Baraka, Avery Brooks, Fred Wesley, Medeski Martin and Wood, Roberta Flack,George Porter Jr. , Willie Colon, the Mingus Big Band,Melissa Manchester, Ornette Coleman bassists Al Macdowell and Tony Falanga ,Cindy Blackmand, Fred Ho,Nona Hendrix, Jason Miles,Vernon Reid, Dj Little Louie Vega, Dj Premier, Elvis Costello,The Wu Tan Clan, Guru’s Jazzmatazz., Has worked with Producer Gary Katz .He has been a guest soloist on the Jimmy Fallon Show with the Roots. Cofounded the Groove Collective. Scored for Film for director Godfrey Reggio..The list goes on and on.

His discography is as equally diverse. From Jazz , Latin ,Classical to Hip Hop. He is one of NYC’s best kept secrets. We keep him gold like that. Truly an underground sonic tone poet and a conceptual super hero.
I am sure lots of Music Aficionados know that Jay Rodriguez is a true pioneer of many great musical waves in NYC, but few know the weight of his genius. It is not only what he has brought to the instruments he plays, or to the groups he has performed with, nor to the many recordings…but to what he has added to the New York aesthetic.

In his wonderful book “Love Goes to Building Fire: Five Years in New York That Changed Music Forever.” Journalist Will Hermes makes the case for those musicians who could care less about genres, nationalities , styles or turfs. This is precisely the case of Jay who creates without asking permission to no one, only to consume as an imaginative listener.when music is great you just get hooked.”

We can’t say Jay is an instrumentalist. Indeed , he is what Mingus imagines a musician should be: “You see a cat walking in and you don’t think of him for his instrument; you think of him as the Music.
-EC

“He could be breathy and insinuating in a ballad, brawny and extroverted in an uptempo…”
-Jon Pareles (NY Times)
