Chucho Valdés & the Afro-Cuban Messengers Presented by Strathmore Sunday, February 9, 2014 at 7:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
Cuba’s most famous artist, pianist, composer and band leader Chucho Valdés has won five Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards over a lifetime that has defined the Afro-Cuban sound. In his newest album, Border-Free, this ever innovative jazz icon melds his Cuban roots with American jazz and Native American traditions in a heady musical brew. “Valdés’ every dancing intro, incisive fill and storming chordal eruption on piano is always irresistible…exactly why he remains one of jazz piano’s most majestic virtuosos” (Guardian UK).
