Chucho Valdés at McCarter

Erik and I saw Chucho Valdés and the Afro-Cuban Messengers at McCarter Theatre. It was the second time I've seen Chucho at McCarter. This is world class jazz! Every man in the band was fantastic, and so was the female guest singer (I couldn't hear her name and she was not in the program). The opening act was also Cuban, the Alfredo Rodriguez Trio. At first I was skeptic, but they soon won me over and after 50 minutes we were ready for Chucho. Erik, who knows more about music than I, was impressed by the tremendous skill displayed by the band members.
