Chuchito Valdes Quartet
Friday, October 23rd 7:30-9:30pm
Mandel Hall 1131 E 57th
Displaying the “hell-bent intensity” of his famous family, Chuchito Valdés continues the tradition of spicy Cuban jazz made popular by his father, Chucho, and grandfather, Bebo. With his quartet, Valdés livens up the stage of Mandel Hall in a performance that runs the gamut from bebop to mambo and cha-cha. Hear why the Chicago Tribune calls the Chuchito Valdés Quartet “jazz improvisation of the most sophisticated kind.”
