Melón, Alfredo Rodríguez and Pedrito Martínez

The second night of the Cuban Piano Series I attended included a double bill of the Iván "Melón" Lewis Quartet and Alfredo Rodríguez Trio both with Pedrito Martínez. This post is of the Melón set.

Jimmy Branly, Román Filiu, Melón, Pedrito and José Antonio Miguel Artigas

The Iván "Melón" Lewis Quartet included Melón on piano, Jimmy Branly on drums, Román Filiú on sax and José Miguel on bass. Many of the timba.com readers will know that Melón is considered one of the top timba pianists of the 1990's. His reputation is from being Issac Delgado's pianist creating incredible tumbaos in the 1990's. Jimmy Branly and Román Filiú also were in Issac's band. Melón, as well as the others in this quartet now are mainly jazz players, although there are hints of timba in Melón's last two recordings (Travesía and Ayer y Hoy).
