Doc's Record and Vintage

Hailing from Havana, Cuba, Jorge Luis Pacheco is one of the leading pianists and musicians of the new generation of jazz in Cuba. Winner of the Montreux Jazz Piano Solo Competition in Switzerland, Pacheco is a fiery young pianist with "flying hands." Pacheco is a virtuoso pianist, composer, arranger, percussionist and singer. Monty Alexander exclaimed that he "defies genre" - often playing Cuban jazz, traditional Cuban music, original film scores, and a new Symphony for Jazz Quartet and Symphony Orquestra that he composed, which is inspired by the music of South America and Afro Cuban Music. Pacheco showed the audience a range of different sounds from the most classic, performed by the Symphonic Orchestra to the most contemporary by the Jazz Quartet, where both joined together to achieve a balance between musical worlds. The Lockdown Album is Jorge Luis Pacheco's Ropeadope debut - a beautiful reflection of our shared experiences of the early twenties. The album is a beautiful presentation of his talent and style, with a modern Cuban flavor that defines the current and future iteration of Cuban style.
