Born: November 17 Primary Instrument: Guitar
Lyrically-gifted veteran guitarist/composer/band leader Jaime Valle has refused to allow his growing success of the last several years slow him down. No mold decorates Valle's frequent treks from Tutto Mare in UTC on Wednesdays to the U. S. Grant Hotel downtown on Saturdays, to La Jolla's Lime Leaf Grill on numerous Thursdays or Fridays, as well as an occasional jaunt up to Nieman's or to the Coyote Bar in Carlsbad (and countless casual gigs all over San Diego county) in between.
Valle also holds forth for Sunday brunches at Sally's in downtown San Diego and admits that he enjoys the rapartee of playing with bassists such as Chris Conner and Bob Magnusson since both have spent time in the company of musical heavyweights whose influence informs their work and makes the job of creating duo music an exercise in versatility....
... Jaime Valle is known for a full-bodied style. His riffs run the range of Jazz, samba, blues, and Latin. - NIGHT & DAY . The Tribune
...Valle's live performances are works of art - beautifully paced, well crafted, and surging with intelligent musical energy.- JazzTimes
