    TICKETS: $44.50/$42.50/$38 Hailed as "the dean of Latin jazz," the legendary, multi-Grammyî Award-winner Chucho Valds' concerts serve as a sonic voyage through the roots and branches of Afro-Cuban music - Yoruba bata drumming, a salsa version of "Stella By Starlight", a Latin-funk reading of Weather Report's "Birdland," a McCoy Tyner-like take on "Besame Mucho" - all played with a breathtaking swagger. "Chucho Valds is also one of the great dignitaries and custodians of Cuban music. Mr. Vald's piano is a great hydraulic fountain of notes, each drop sparkling as it falls." - New York Times
