Full Show Friday: Chucho Valdes: Irakere 40 Estival Jazz Lugano 2015

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Chucho Valdes: Irakere 40!

It's Jazzy January again here at RtBE, so get ready to kick off 2016 with some different styled shows every Friday. For this series we skew into new (or more recent) jazz lands. Keeping it current proves there is amazing live jazz still being performed no matter what Ken Burns says.

RtBE heads to Cuba this week to get funky with Chucho Valdes and Irakere 40. This is some spirited Latin jazz that has room for tons of drums, brass, piano and vocals.

Here are all the players Chucho Valdés - piano, Yaroldy Abreu Robles - percussion, vocals, Dreiser Durruthy Bombalé–Batás - lead vocal, Rodney Barreto - drums, vocals, Gastón Joya - bass, vocals, Manuel Machado - trumpet, Ariel Bringuez - tenor sax, Alexander Abreu - trumpet, vocals, Rafael Águila - alto sax, Reinaldo Melián - trumpet. The set was captured at the Estival Jazz Lugano in 2015.

The music is alive and thankfully you are too, so what are you waiting for? Enjoy:
