Ramon Valle

Born:

Cuban pianist Ramon Valle is a seasoned veteran with the explosive energy of a racehorse straight out of the gate. At this pivotal point in his career, Valle is on the runway and primed for TAKE OFF. Ramon’s stage presence is commanding, whether within the ranks of an orchestra or leading a trio. His performances and stage presence are charismatic, his music – intoxicating. No longer a diamond-in-the-rough, he is the perfectly cut gem. “Sometimes I feel like a troubadour,” he says, “because I tell stories, but stories without words.” Under the guidance and Management of world-renown Producer Suzi Reynolds, Valle’s career has been sculpted to not only showcase his versatility as a composer, arranger, and performer of his own works, but on his forthcoming release, also offers his own ‘take-offs’ on the great works of other artists, passionately interpreting the harmonies of Stevie Wonder, the poignant lyrics of Leonard Cohen and the spirit of John Coltrane. Valle was only seven when he began studying the piano at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in his hometown of Holguín, Cuba

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
