Jorge Luis Pacheco Trio

Aug 10, Saturday - 8pm
SJZ Break Room Stage

Hailing from Havana, Cuba, Jorge Luis Pacheco is a virtuoso pianist, singer, composer, percussionist and arranger. His music has been described as a confluence of Afro-Cuban and American jazz and classical music, with a measure of contemporary pop and soul.

A winner of the Montreux Jazz Piano Solo Competition, Pacheco has performed all over the world at prominent jazz clubs, theaters, and festivals, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and the Apollo Theater in New York City. He has shared stages with a wide array of renowned musicians, including Chucho Valdés, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Lenny White, Dave Weckl, Wynton Marsalis, Stanley Clarke, Arturo O’Farrill and others.

In 2021, Pacheco released his latest project, The Lockdown Album, on which he searched for new ways to expand his horizons as a pianist and composer. As classical music has played an important role throughout his career, he brought both worlds together, integrating compositions from Chopin and Beethoven with traditional and modern jazz and elements drawn from his Cuban roots.

Jorge Luis Pacheco is a passionate, extravagant and exciting entertainer on stage who constantly captures the audience’s attention with his heartfelt performances and electric energy. His emotionally profound artistry is steeped in his unrelenting love of improvisation, his lyrical, poetic, musical soul and the discipline of his deep classical training.

Jorge Luis Pacheco will also play a set on the Hammer Theatre Stage.
