Jane Bunnett brings Chucho Valdés to town, BIG show at Koerner Hall on Oct 20.
Look at the lineup of local backup. Even though mostly based in Toronto, we rarely see all these talents on the stage at the same time. Most of these guys have already played with Chucho… in the famous band Irakere, or other performances.
Jane Bunnett, saxophone & flute
Hilario Durán, piano
David Virelles, piano
Roberto Riveron, bass
Jorge “Papiosco” Torres, percussion
Ahmed Mitchel, drums
Alberto Alberto, vocals
Larry Cramer, trumpet & flugelhorn
Also on the bill… local Toronto rumba troupe Iya Ire.
Note, Iya Ire are also rumbeando the next day at Painted Lady on Ossington, 5:30 to 8:30pm… check time as it comes closer, we’ll post the event.
