The Jorge Luis Pacheco Quartet’s Tribute to Buena Vista Social Club

  • Jorge Luis Pacheco’s birthdate: December 18, 1984 in Havana
  • How he delights audiences: the passionate, exciting entertainer constantly captures the attention of the crowd with heartfelt performances and electric energy
  • Impressive musical skills he possesses: virtuoso pianist, composer, arranger, percussionist, and vocalist
  • Impressive thing he’s done since then: won first prize at the 2007 International Competition of Young Jazz Musicians
  • Second impressive thing: was selected by Wynton Marsalis to perform with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in Havana
  • Impressive thing he’ll be doing soon: Performing at the Jazz Foundation of America’s 13th Annual “A Great Night in Harlem” event, where musician Herbie Hancock will be presented with a lifetime achievement award
  • Impressive thing he’ll probably never do: lick the back of his head
  • Instrument of choice: the piano—fellow musician Bobby Carcasses dubbed him “Flying Hands”
  • The Buena Vista Social Club: originally a members-only establishment in 1940s Havana
  • How it was resurrected: half a century after the club closed its doors, a loose consortium of associated musicians got together to release an all-new album of festive son, bolero, guajira, and danzón music
  • How the world reacted: with a Grammy, an Academy Award-nominated documentary, an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall, and an international tour that’s still going on
  • Pacheco’s relationship to the legendary Cuban music collective: he’s shared the stage with several members, including percussionist Amadito Valdes
  • How he pays respect to them: by playing an evening’s worth of their tunes, along with his own
