Jorge Luis Pacheco (

On this debut of the hour-long Jazz Caliente, I feature some music from Cuban pianist/composer Jorge Luis Pacheco.  The wonderful folks joined me on the 88.5 Travel Club trip to Cuba in 2013 were amazed at this young man’s performance at the Havana jazz club La Zorra y El Cuervo.  He’s performing in Bellingham on Sunday, in Olympia on Wednesday 11/9 and popping in to the Royal Room on Thursday 11/10 to join the show with the Entremundos Quarteto and the Brazilian drum and dance group VamoLá.

In other Jazz Caliente news, Latin Jazz and Salsa pianist, composer and bandleader Eddie Palmieri recently added another award to his already impressive collection:  this year’s LeJENd (legend) of Latin Jazz Award from the Jazz Education Network (JEN).  It will look great next to his 10 Grammy Awards, including the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Latin Recording in 1975, and his 2013 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters award.
