Chucho Valdes Quartet at the Winspear

Some doodles of the legendary Cuban jazz pianist and composer, Chucho Valdes at the piano, with his quartet (bass, drums, and congas)... playing this evening at the Winspear Centre as part of his most recent North American tour.

I first encountered the music of Chucho Valdes in Vancouver in 1998, and it blew me away. Four years later, he was to play in Edmonton (where I had moved), but unfortunately for me, that concert was cancelled at the very last minute. So when I heard that he was playing again at the Winspear Centre this year, I jumped to get tickets.
