Not On Sale

A Jazz @ The Jacobs Concert

Chucho Valdés, piano
Special Guests: Farofa

Considered the pre-eminent Cuban Jazz pianist in the world, Chucho Valdés is a towering figure who combines the sheer power of McCoy Tyner with the dexterity of Oscar Peterson and a rhythmic sensibility steeped in the intricacies of Afro-Cuban culture. The conservatory-trained son of Cuban music icon Bebo Valdés and an eight-time Grammy winner, Chucho has spent much of his career in the vanguard of Latin music. (Note: this will be a solo piano presentation.)

Chucho Valdés just won the 2017 Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album!

Opening the concert will be the talented young Brazilian quartet Farofa.

The San Diego Symphony Orchestra does not appear on this program.

The Jazz @ The Jacobs Series is sponsored by Doctor Bob and Mao Shillman.
