Update Ramon Valle + Follow

Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: October 29, 1964

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 is a more open, overly emotional piano – trio master than Brad Meldhau. Mcoy Tyner and Chick Corea are the musicians who come to mind as comparisons. He is a formidably sophisticated player rooted in Cuban jazz, but drawing on resources way beyond the usual suspects the idiom usually calls up.”

THE GUARDIAN, LONDON

“Valle is equally adept at intensely swinging like Oscar Peterson – but with a groove that reflects the syncopation of the Afro-Cuban clave-playing pop music or reveling in the island’s many traditional rhythms. And like any of the pianists who record for ECM, Valle can draw the curtain down around himself and play powerfully introspective music.”

– JAZZTIMES

“Technical virtuosity and a unique improvisational style deeply influenced by his love for classical music and his Cuban heritage are the ingredients of this young piano player.”
