Chucho Valdés Quartet
Winner of seven Grammy and five Latin Grammy Awards, Cuban pianist, composer, and arranger Chucho Valdés is the most influential figure in modern Afro-Cuban jazz. In a rich career spanning 60 years, Valdés has pushed boundaries in pursuit of new expressions in Afro-Cuban music. Valdés is perhaps best known as the founder, pianist, and main composer and arranger of Irakere, a landmark ensemble in Cuban music. Valdés led Irakere for more than 30 years, but since 2005 he has focused on his personal career, highlighting his work as a pianist and leading small ensembles, like the Afro-Cuban Messengers, Jazz Batá, and his acclaimed Quartet. Valdés is a recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, has been inducted into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame, and received a DC Jazz Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.
Emmet Cohen Trio
Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen has emerged as one of his generation's pivotal figures in music and the related arts. A recognized prodigy, Cohen began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three, and his playing quickly became a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. He leads his namesake ensemble the Emmet Cohen Trio, is a vibrant solo performer, and is in constant demand as a sideman. He is also currently Hammond B-3 organist-in-residence at Harlem's SMOKE jazz club. Possessing a fluid technique, an innovative tonal palette, and an extensive repertoire, Cohen plays with the command of a seasoned veteran and the passion of an artist fully devoted to his medium.
Anat Cohen Quartet
The perennial winner of “Clarinetist of the Year” titles from DownBeat, JazzTimes, and the Jazz Journalists Association, the ever charismatic, prolific, and inspired Grammy Award-nominated clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen has won hearts and minds the world over with her expressive virtuosity and delightful stage presence. As The Wall Street Journal says, “What’s not to love about a young clarinetist and saxophonist who plays everything we love—modern jazz, world music, “hot” New Orleans style jazz—and does it all brilliantly?” Cohen (clarinet and bass clarinet) performs with Vitor Gonçalves (accordion and piano), and Tal Mashiach (bass & 7-string guitar).
Terell Stafford Quintet
Terell Stafford, an acclaimed trumpet player based in New York, is recognized as an incredibly gifted and versatile player, combining a deep love of melody with his own brand of spirited and adventurous lyricism. Stafford is a member of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, awarded a Grammy Award in 2009 for Best Large Ensemble, Live at the Village Vanguard. Stafford can be heard on more than 130 albums including his own, BrotherLee Love, Celebrating Lee Morgan, which received a 47th Annual NAACP Image Award nomination. Stafford is the Director of Jazz Studies and Chair of Instrumental Studies at Temple University, founder and band leader of the Terell Stafford Quintet, and Managing and Artistic Director of the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia. Founded by Terell Stafford, the members of the Terell Stafford Quintet are highly accomplished educators, composers, arrangers, and band leaders.
