Add to Calendar 2017-11-30 8:00 pm 2017-11-30 Manuel Valera Trio "the Planets" at The Falcon Throughout his career, Valera has been an expert at blending high concept and visceral groove. His recent projects have included a sprawling song cycle based on the writings of José Martí and a suite inspired by Antonio Vivaldi’s famous concerto grosso, The Four Seasons, released on record this past spring.

Valera will present his project “The Planets,” inspired by the Gustav Holst composition of the same name. Like Valera’s José Martí project, “The Planets” was the winner of a Chamber Music America New Jazz Works grant. To get a taste of what Valera has in store, check out the trio—featuring Hans Glawishnig on bass and E.J. Strickland on drums—running through some of the music.

This project has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America’s 2017 New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
