Four decades ago, Chucho Valdes revolutionized Cuba's musical landscape at the head of his jazz outfit Irakere, whose work sounds strikingly modern to this day. At age 74, the Cuban pianist is off on a new adventure with a fresh line-up of young musicians quite innocent of Irakere's early triumphs. Re-capturing the volcanic energy and force of his iconic hits, here he is [live in concert] making history once more.
