Two artists who exemplify the standards for creativity and exploration at the venerable Blue Note Records come together for the first time in the Chucho Valdés – Joe Lovano Quintet. Pianist Chucho Valdés, who first appeared on Blue Note in 1985, has been a key figure in the evolution of Afro-Cuban jazz for the past 50 years, while saxophonist Joe Lovano, who started at that label in 1990, has recorded more albums on Blue Note than any other artist. Both fearless innovators at the forefront of artistic expression, this collaboration expands their shared quest for the leading edge in jazz expression. The promise of combined greatness, anticipated for over 20 years, will deliver beyond expectations in a quintet backed by a bassist, drummer, and percussionist who rank among Cuba’s hottest and most seasoned instrumentalists.
