"A new route into Cuban Jazz"
Ramón’s stage presence is commanding, whetever within the ranks of an orchestra or leading a trio. His performances and stage presence are charismatic, his music – intoxicating.
Valle was only seven when he began studying the piano at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in his hometown Holguin, Cuba. He later completed his advanced studies at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana. After establishing himself on the jazz festival scene in Mexico, Bogota and Havana, the great Cuban pianist and founder of Irakere, Chucho Valdes, declared Ramón Valle ‘The greatest talent among our young pianists’, when introducing Ramón on his debut album, Levitando in 1993.
