Chucho Valdés – Jazz Batá

Chucho Valdés – Jazz Batá

February 8, 2019, 8:00 pm at Wortham Center's Cullen Theater

Event date: 2/8/2019 8:00 PM Add to iCalendar

Presented by Da Camera 

Winner of six Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, the Cuban pianist, composer, arranger, and bandleader Chucho Valdés has been a key figure in the evolution of Afro-Cuban jazz for the past 50 years. In 1972, Valdés released his fourth album, a trio recording with bass and batá drums entitled simply, Jazz Batá. Decades later, Chucho Valdés returns to the Jazz Batá sound — blending jazz with traditional rhythms of the sacred batá — in a journey to discover new interpretations of classic forms.

“A pianist of imperial command, possessed of a dazzling, deceptively casual virtuosity.” — The New York Times

“Be it as a composer or as a pianist, Valdés… is one of the great pillars in the history of contemporary jazz.” — The Houston Chronicle

BOX OFFICE: 713-524-5050
