Chucho Valdes: A New Music for A New Century

Chucho Valdes: A New Music for A New CenturyHavana, Apr. 23. -Cuban composer and jazz musician Jesus (Chucho) Valdes spoke for a new music for a new century in which the world experiences critical times.

My work, my researches are going that way, Valdes said on Thursday in a press conference at the National Hotel of Cuba where he launched his most recent CD, Chucho´s Steps.

According to critics, this is a much evolved, experimental record with a daring change in time ranging from eight to five, instead of the usual six.

The record is the result of seven years of exploring and studying; it is also my best work, Valdes added. (Prensa Latina)
