Cuba libre! With Chucho Valdés and Paquito D’Rivera two old companions in every sense of the word meet up once again for a reunion. Both were born within the same decade in Cuba's capital Havana (Valdés in 1941, and D'Rivera seven years later). When their paths crossed in the first half of the 1960s, it heralded the start of a new era for Cuban jazz: never before had such a breathtaking combination of joyfulness, tuneful exuberance, harmonic refinement and terrific speed been heard. Valdés and D'Rivera wrote musical history, first with the fabulous Orquesta Cubana de Música Moderna and then with the trailblazing band Irakere. Later on, they went different ways, Valdés stayed in Cuba, D'Rivera moved to the USA. But on a metaphysical level they remained connected through their musical passion.
