Jorge Luis Pacheco at Piano Night
April 28, 2014
One of Cuba’s most extraordinary pianists, Jorge Luis Pacheco was the only pianist to be invited to perform with Wynton Marsalis on his closing night in Havana in October, 2010. His current CD was produced by multi Grammy winner Chucho Valdes, and they are co-recording one of the tracks. Jorge Luis Pacheco is a first prize winner of the Jo Jazz (young jazz) award.
