Overview

A brilliant flute player, Orlando "Maraca" Valle plays on the level of a Hubert Laws (he can create fast and complex phrases that sound effortless) and he is a strong improviser. With his wife, Celine, Valle on second flute, guest altoist Lenny Pickett, and such soloists as Irving Acao (on alto and tenor), German Velazco (alto and tenor), and trumpeters Luis Valle and Alexander Brown, plus an exciting rhythm section that includes up to four percussionists, this is a memorable set. The band interprets Valle's originals, one song by his brother and Cedar Walton's "Bolivia." Exciting Afro-Cuban jazz by some of the top Cuban players residing in Havana today.
