In 1962, two of the most influential and talented instrumentalists Cuba has ever produced met. Saxophonist/clarinetist Paquito D’Rivera was invited to hear pianist Chucho Valdés at a local club in his Marianao neighborhood in southern Havana. The two soon became a musical partnership that helped shape jazz in Cuba. Their paths would part in 1980, when D’Rivera left Cuba.
Sixty years after they first met, the two have finally reunited to make a monumental new recording. I Missed You Too! is the first recording by D’Rivera and Valdés since they were both members of Cuba’s most influential jazz / fusion ensemble Irakere.
