Cuban pianists hold a somewhat special position in jazz and are always met with general enthusiasm at festivals, probably not least because their music goes straight to one’s heart rather than one’s head. We have invited two of them to a Cuban pianist battle full of fire, passion and enthusiasm. Common to most Cuban pianists is a blend of profound classical education, thrilling virtuosity, and more or less subtle Afro-Cuban groove. 

Like Chucho Valdes, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Ramón Valle, Roberto Fonseca, David Virelles or Alfredo Rodriguez, also Omar Sosa belongs to this tradition and is probably the Latin scene’s currently most versatile jazz pianist. He branches out into African spiritualism as well as into hip hop. 

One generation younger, the first female shooting star, Marialy Pacheco, is in the wings, about to get a great career going. She was, after all, the first woman to win the prestigious piano competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival and the first jazz pianist worldwide to be named official Bösendorfer artist. 

Her spirited grace and excellent technique are representative of a highly individual style marked by an unbridled enthusiasm for playing her instrument. Her unique style combines elements of Cuban folk music with the rich sound palette of Keith Jarrett and the polyphony of Bill Evans, as well as with a multi-faceted classical piano tradition.
