Harvey Valdes BIO

Harvey's eclectic musical journey spans the East and the West, the electric and the acoustic, the ensemble and the solo voice. As an oud player, Harvey worked extensively with Middle Eastern Jazz Ensemble, Anistar, developing a repertoire that blended Middle Eastern forms with jazz improvisation. As an Associate Artist with renowned experimental theater company, The Wooster Group, Harvey played electric guitar for the company's adventurous take on Francesco Cavalli's 1641 baroque opera, La Didone. Both his solo guitar album of jazz standards, Roundabout, and album of original compositions, PointCounterPoint, for guitar, violin and drums received rave reviews from All About Jazz, Jazziz Magazine, Downtown Music Gallery, Guitar Moderne, and Just Jazz Guitar.
