Since the late 1990s, JALC has celebrated Cuban music with collaborations with some of the island nation’s finest musicians like Celia Cruz, Israel “Cachao” López, Candido Camero, and Bebo Valdés, including a landmark Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra residency in 2010. Continuing this tradition, the 2014-15 season will open with “Ochas” a world premiere commission featuring influential pianist, composer, and arranger Chucho Valdés; rising star percussionist and vocalist Pedrito Martinez; and JALC’s own Wynton Marsalis. Together, they will blend jazz with the traditional folkloric music of Cuba and the Santeria religion to create a work which illustrates the ability of music to elevate us from social and political unrest to the greatest heights of humanity.
