The GRAMMY-winning tenor saxophonist joins the reigning Cuban piano genius and key figure in the evolution of Afro-Cuban jazz in this first-time duo collaboration that bridges musical and cultural borders. Valdés is a singular figure in the history of Cuban jazz, a vanguard player and composer who has continued to expand the synthesis of Afro-Cuban folkloric rhythms and post-bop since co-founding the iconic and pervasively influential band Irakere in the early 1970s. He’s released a series of albums on Blue Note that brilliantly capture his awesome keyboard prowess and torrential improvisational flights. Lovano is the rightful heir to the tenor titan lineage that runs from Coleman Hawkins and Dexter Gordon to John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins. Together, Lovano and Valdés are traveling beyond genre and style to a rarified realm that’s pure inspiration.
