Hailing from Havana, pianist Jorge Luis Pacheco is a fiery young pianist with “flying hands.” He is also a singer and a composer. His music is a confluence of Cuban jazz, Cuban and Afro Cuban music, American jazz, and classical music with a measure of contemporary pop and soul. He has performed all over the world including prominent jazz clubs such as Dizzy’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, theaters, and festivals such as the Blue Note Jazz Festival in New York, as well as the Sziget Festival in the City of Budapest, Hungary, and the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Israel. He also performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington with his quartet and solo piano several times as well as the legendary Apollo Theater, where a lifetime achievement award was presented to Herbie Hancock. Recently, Jorge performed at Berklee School of Music in Boston, where he also gave a Master class. He has collaborated with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and the LLCO, Arturo O’Farrill, and the legendary Lenny White as well as Dave Weckl and Richie Goods. He has a Master in Composition from the Instituto Superior de Arte de LA Habana.

Pacheco truly is a phenomenon of the piano, continuing the tradition of Chucho Valdes but more importantly a pianist with his own identity…”               

Arturo O´Farrill
