The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation presents the legendary Cuban jazz pianist Chucho Valdés and his band in a Jazz Journey Concert at the Joy Theater on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012.
Valdés, a multiple-Grammy winner, co-founded the legendary group Irakere (which also included Arturo Sandoval and Paquito d'Rivera).
Opening for Valdés will be Alexey Marti, a young Cuban percussionist studying at the University of New Orleans. He'll lead a Latin jazz ensemble and also do a special duet performance with the young Cuban jazz pianist Aldo Lopez-Gavilan.
Admission is free! Doors open at 7pm and seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. Don't dilly dally on this one! » Read More
