Chucho Valdés

When: Tue., Nov. 27, 7:30 p.m. 2012

No running tally of great Cuban artists is complete without Chucho Valdés. With a storied musical family and a shelf of Grammys, the 71-year-old Valdés still leads the pack of the island nation's premier pianists. Like a captain who knows every inch of his ship, Valdés dominates the full range of the keyboard with rare gusto. His unerring cool flows from the Afro-Cuban rhythm at the heart of his sound, which inherits the harmonic richness of classical music and the modal excitement of jazz. A giant mind powering giant hands—that's the takeaway from experiencing this Cuban legend in live performance. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
