Jonathan Rodriguez (drums) is an emerging percussionist having received his Bachelor's degree at Millikin University in Latin American Studies and Percussion Performance, and holds a Master's degree, also in Percussion Performance, from the University of New Mexico.

He has won numerous awards and competitions for performance and scholarship, and has taught music theory and percussion lessons throughout various schools and institutions across the country.

Recently, Rodriguez began the Postcards Project: an ongoing compilation of field recordings from Latin American countries in which he commissions new works for percussion using those sources as a way to offer a different type of global perspective. He has recently continued his touring efforts in Europe with the prestigious World Percussion Group, and with Eileen & the In-Betweens, a folk/rock band rooted in social activism, across the U.S. and Canada.

Rodriguez now leads his own jazz quintet, providing a fresh and honest approach to jazz composition and newly arranged interpretations of jazz standards.

His debut contemporary jazz single «I'd Like That» peaked at #14 on the Billboard Jazz charts. His follow up single «Honey Girl» peaked at #13 after 20 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Charts.

The success of these singles led to nation-wide performances at jazz festivals across the country including a spot at the Seabreeze Jazz Festival as their «Rising Star».

With solid technique and emotive songwriting, Montano's sound is a captivating fusion of jazz, soul and latin stylings. His music has become a steady fixture on Sirius Satellite Radio and at radio stations the world over.
