Jaime Valle started out playing top 40 hits, but before long grew tired and was looking for something new when he happened upon jazz. It was a match made in heaven. After studying with Howard Roberts among others, Jaime went on to forge a top flight repertoire leading to multiple San Diego music awards in both straight ahead and Latin jazz. In addition to performing worldwide in jazz festivals with such luminaries as Steve Allen, Frankie Laine, Sammy Davis Jr., Dave Valentin, Eddie Harris, Joe Farrell, Kenny Burrell, Ron Eschete, Russell Malone, Ramon Banda and Ernie Watts, Jaime has received 14 San Diego Music Awards, making him the single biggest winner in the event's history.
