About

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
