Chucho Valdes

This Afro-Cuban jazz progenitor gave Paquito D'Rivera and Arturo Sandoval their start, has won four Grammys (not that anyone's counting), and has been touring almost constantly for the past several years. At 71, he’s a bona fide master of his art form, and Carnegie Hall deserves some Latin seasoning, which will not be in short supply. His quintet, afterall, has two auxiliary percussionists. On December 4, he’ll be joined onstage by three other Afro-Cuban jazz piano legends: Danilo Perez, Egberto Gismonti, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.
Sat., Dec. 1, 8 p.m.; Tue., Dec. 4, 8 p.m., 2012
