CHUCHO VALDÉS & Yoruban Orchestra: La Creación

Composed in celebration of his 80th birthday in 2021, Cuban piano legend Chucho Valdés presents his new three-movement suite for a 23-piece big band, 'La Creación' (The Creation). Encompassing sacred Yoruba chants, Afro-Cuban rhythms, post-bop harmonies and what Valdés describes as “an atmosphere in the style of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew.” 'La Creación' is an extraordinary career-spanning masterwork rendered with the vibrant sonic palette he forged in the Cuban jazz fusion band Irakere.
