Jorge Luis Pacheco Trio – presented by Dual Citizen Brewing Company

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” says Cuban jazz musician Bobby Carcassés. “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.” Pacheco has performed all over the world and in prominent jazz clubs such as Dizzy’s Jazz at Lincoln Center (New York), and festivals such as the Blue Note Jazz Festival in New York.
