Jorge Luis Pacheco
Hailing from Havana, Cuba, Jorge Luis Pacheco is a fiery young pianist with "flying hands." He has performed all over the world including prominent jazz clubs, theaters, and festivals such as the Blue Note Jazz Festival in New York. Pacheco has performed at the Apollo Theater in where a lifetime achievement award was presented to Herbie Hancock and at Lincoln Center.
Pacheco is a virtuoso pianist, composer, arranger, percussionist and vocalist. Monty Alexander says that he "defies genre" often playing Cuban jazz, traditional Cuban music, original documentary scores, and even directs symphonies. He also won the audience choice award at the world famous Montreux jazz festival competition.
Pacheco is a passionate, exciting entertainer on stage and constantly captures the audience's attention with his heartfelt performances and electric energy. Cab Calloway's daughter Cabella Calloway was one of those audience members who instantly became a fan and supporter. She has gifted Cab Calloway's piano to Pacheco because she stated that it's "what her father would have wanted."
Celebrate great music with gorgeous Latin Jazz by Jorge Luis Pacheco, hailed by Wynton Marsalis who said "This young musician has a very bright future.
DROM is one of Manhattan's most sought after venues for world music and international sounds. Voted by Village Voice as "Best New Dance Club" last month in their Best of NYC issue, the club has a live stage for performances, a restaurant, bar and lounge. Here is an excerpt from the Voice "The basement dancerie Drom celebrated its reopening in the spring after quietly shutting down more than a year ago. The time off did the space a service. Once just another bar hidden among the dives of the East Village, Drom has now fully embraced its original aim of bringing global dance music to NYC. The club hosts a cozy lounge that leads way into a gorgeous dance floor backlit by the warm flicker of bar lights and a Turkish chandelier that looms above."
