KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” heats up with the piano of Nachito Herrera, captured live from Vail Jazz at Vail Square!

Born Ignacio Herrera in Cuba, “Nachito” grew up as a piano phenomenon, performing with the Havana Symphony Orchestra at age 12. He’s played with orchestras worldwide, but his Latin jazz legacy was as the musical director for Cubanismo! A composer and arranger, he’s toured the world’s top jazz festivals and gathered awards including Grammys, Emmys, the Immigrant of Distinction Award among others.

It’s pianist Nachito Herrera on KUVO’s performance archive show “On Stage” with Susan Gatschet on Saturday, January 8, at 10 pm, and Monday, January 10, at 7 pm. Only on KUVO JAZZ!
