Direct from Havana, Cuba, Jorge Luis Pacheco is here for his fourth US Tour and his west coast debut. Cuba's hottest up and coming young jazz pianist takes to the United States in this unforgettable concert series. In this intimate space, this extraordinary artist will showcase Cuba's traditional music with songs such as "Dos Gardenias" and "Silencio" as well as his original Cuban jazz compositions. Jorge Luis Pacheco was the winner of the first prize at the International Competition of Young Jazz musicians (Jo-Jazz) in 2007. Pacheco is currently pursuing a master's degree at the Institute of Superior Arts in Havana, and was the only Cuban jazz pianist to perform with the great Wynton Marsalis in his recent Havana concert. Pacheco has fine-tuned his craft while performing with such legendary giants as Chucho Valdés, Bobby Carcasses, Javier Zalba, Orlando Sanchez, Pablo Milanes, Rolando Luna, Stanley Clark, and many others.

A composer, pianist, percussionist, and musical director, Pacheco has also participated in festivals and concerts in Cuba, Spain, German, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, and Switzerland. He was a finalist in the International Jazz Competition at Montreaux in Switzerland in 2009. In 2010 he performed with the Jazz Orchestra at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis and Chucho Valdés during their presentation in Havana, receiving rave reviews from both audiences and press. Pachecho has just finished producing his first album "Pacheco's Blue" produced by Chucho Valdés.

This young musician has a very bright future.
- Wynton Marsalis
