Chuchito Valdes

February 17, 2018 20:30 to 23:30


From Cuba! Piano virtuoso and his group heat up the cold winter with Hot Latin Jazz Live at Nighttown!

The hot sounds of Cuba's roots and modern jazz come alive in the explosive hands of pianist and six-time Latin Grammy nominee Chuchito Valdes. Son of Chucho Valdes, grandson of Bebo Valdes, Cuba's most beloved musical dynasty.

Chuchito Valdés, following in the footsteps of his famed father Chucho Valdés and grandfather Bebo Valdés, continues the legacy of great piano players form Cuba.

With influences of Caribbean rhythms and jazz, Chuchito creates an exciting and energetic blend of spicy music that drives audiences wild. This piano master captivates with his sensitivity and drives excitement with his dynamic band.

Chuchito has recorded and performed piano with the world renown Cuban band, Irakere, which he led for two years. He has also performed at festivals, clubs and concerts throughout the world: from Cuba and the Caribbean to North America, South America, and Europe.

Chuchito is recognized as a master of Cuban music including Son, Danzon, Cuban Timba and Guaguanco. He has also extensively studied classical music including harmony and composition. His original compositions and arrangements draw on classical harmonic and structural techniques. In his performances, Chuchito’s music draws on many styles including Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz, Bebop, Danzon, Cha-Cha-Cha, Son Montuno and much more. Chuchito Valdés currently resides in Cancun, Mexico and is a frequent performer in the United State and Canada.

“Chuchito Valdés displays the hell-bent intensity and daredevil technique of the elder Valdés-qualities recognized worldwide as hallmarks of Cuban Jazz.”

Neil Tesser / The Reader (Chicago’s Art & Culture Guide) and author of The Playboy Guide to Jazz.
