Melissa Aldana Visions Quartet
On her first jazz quartet album, Visions, award-winning saxophonist Melissa Aldana connects her work to the legacy of Latina artists who have come before her, creating a pathway for her own expression. Inspired by the life and works of Frida Kahlo, Aldana creates a parallel between her experiences as a female saxophonist in a male-dominated community, and Kahlo’s experiences as a female visual artist working to assert herself in a landscape dominated by men. On Visions, Aldana adds a new dimension to her sound, resulting in a transformative movement of expression and self-identity.
