Formed in 1995 by Jessica Valiente, Anna Milat-Meyer and Yasuyo Kimura, the group brings together some of today's finest Latin musicians. Collectively, the band's resume reads like a who's-who of New York's jazz and Latin music scene. Its members have played with Chico O'Farrill, Louis Bauzó, Charlie Persip, Max Roach, Orlando Marín, The Nelson Riddle Orchestra, the Kit McClure Band, Jimmy Bosch, Grammy-nominated Juan Carlos Formell...and the list goes on. Taking its name from its leader, Brooklyn-born flutist Jessica Valiente, Los Más Valientes plays original Latin jazz compositions as well as innovative arrangements of Latin jazz standards. On the other hand, if it's dancing you want, Los Más Valientes can deliver; they play Latin dance music in the classic tradition of the Cachao descargas, Fania All-Stars, Alegre All-stars, and all the legendary charanga bands. Los Más Valientes has four highly successful commercial releases and a fifth one to come. Please visit our CD page to listen or to get your own copy!
