Miguel Zenon, genius

Congrats to Miguel Zenon, a new MacArthur "genius." MacArthur's choices for jazz geniuses have been impeccable, but slanted heavily toward the established elder statesmen of the avant garde, like Ornette, Cecil, and Max Roach. Zenon (age 31) seems to fit the bill as a young Turk. And he can blow.
