Direct from Havana, Jorge Luis Pacheco is Cuba's hottest up and coming young jazz pianist. In this intimate space, this extraordinary artist will showcase Cuba's traditional music with songs such as "Dos Gardenias" and "Silencio" as well as his explosive original Cuban jazz compositions. Jorge Luis Pacheco was the winner of the first prize at the International Competition of Young Jazz musicians (Jo-Jazz) in 2007 and has since evolved to become Cuba's top young pianist. Pacheco was the only Cuban jazz pianist to perform with Wynton Marsalis and the jazz at Lincoln Center orchestra in his recent concert in Havana's Teatro Mella. Pacheco has fine-tuned his craft while performing with such legendary giants as Chucho Valdés, Bobby Carcasses, Javier Zalba, Orlando Sanchez, Pablo Milanes, Rolando Luna, Stanley Clark, and many others.
 
A composer, pianist, percussionist, and musical director, Pacheco has also participated in festivals and concerts in Cuba, Spain, German, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, and Switzerland. He was a finalist in the International Jazz Competition at Montreaux in Switzerland in 2009. In 2010 he performed with the Jazz Orchestra at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis and Chucho Valdés during their presentation in Havana, receiving rave reviews from both audiences and press. Pacheco's first album "Musa" was produced by Chucho Valdés. He just completed production of his second CD.
 
This young musician has a very bright future.
