Brought to you by the Oberlin Jazz Society
Performance features Manuel Valera (piano), Hans Gawischnig (bass) and EJ Strickland (drums). The trio fuses elements of straight ahead jazz, Latin jazz, and R&B to create a personal sound including creative takes on standards as well as a deep exploration into Cuban music, where Valera's roots lie.
The trio's Oberlin appearance will happen right before they take off for Japan on a seven-date tour. For more about Manuel Valera, visit www.manuelvalera.com.
