Chucho Valdés

Cuban virtuoso pianist Chucho Valdés culminates a day of master classes for Berklee students with a recital by his fiery trio. Multi-Grammy Award–winner and founder of the rhythmically innovative Latin jazz band Irakere, Valdés has been hailed by the New York Times as "the dean of Latin jazz" and "one of the world's great virtuosic pianists." He has recorded over 80 albums during his illustrious career and performed with countless jazz masters, including Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, and Chick Corea.
