Cuba has long shared its great cultural riches with the world, including some of the most incredible pianists on the planet. A fresh new face has emerged and is making waves with his ‘flying hands’ and a unique style that presents a new voice in jazz. Hailing from Havana, Cuba – Jorge Luis Pacheco is fast becoming a seasoned veteran, having performed at some of the most respected venues in the world. From Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York to the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Pacheco wowed the crowd at New York’s Blue Note Jazz Festival and gained notoriety at the legendary Apollo Theater for the Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony honoring Herbie Hancock.
Having collaborated with Wynton Marsalis and Arturo O’Farrill, this young talent expresses charisma and exciting energy in his live performances. Pacheco is a virtuoso pianist, composer, arranger, percussionist, and vocalist and Monty Alexander exclaims he “defies genre.” Charleston Jazz is excited to welcome the Jorge Luis Pacheco Quartet as part of the 2022 Charleston Jazz Festival!
