For one night only - A legend performs at Miller.

Chucho Valdes, Cuba’s foremost pianist, has developed a brand new repertoire. Boasting a new line-up for his band, The Afro-Cuban Messengers, his new album takes us through an eclectic range of pieces.  His dazzling virtuosity as a pianist, his prodigious talents as a composer, and his ingenious arrangements unite to create a music that enthralls.

Alongside new sources of inspiration (the music of the North American Indians and of the Arab-Andalusian culture), the album is infused with the verve of Valdés’ early trailblazing Cuban Jazz ensemble Irakere, his nostalgia for Cuban big bands, the punch of hard bop, the magical rhythms of the Yoruba drums, and of course the spiritual lyricism which is the mark of all great jazz.
