“The blending of Latin music with jazz harmony and improvisation has produced more than a mere hybrid, as a survey of New York’s younger players would reveal. MANUEL VALERA, a Cuban pianist in his mid-20’s, illustrates that evolution handily: postbop and classical romanticism are as integral to his vocabulary as Latin folk forms, and they all find natural expression in his music.”
