‘Omar Puente's contribution to 20th and 21st century violin playing has now become legendary. His generous nature, his commitment to good music, his enjoyment of life and his respect for his colleagues are all characteristics which make him a true violin great' - Nigel Kennedy


Superlative Cuban jazz violinist, Puente has worked with the likes of Courtney Pine and Denys Baptiste and appears here with his own hard-driving, rhythmically lithe band. Born in Santiago de Cuba, Puente learned his love of violin from his father. As a student at Santiago's finest music school, Omar studied classical music under world-renowned professors.
