José Angel Valdes (born August 4, 1957) is a Jazz, Latin jazz and classical pianist, organist and bandleader.
Valdes started piano at age six in elementary school, taking piano lessons from a nun that came to the public school he attended. His predilection for piano was partially influenced by the pianists he saw on television, such as Steve Allen, Liberace, Oscar Levant and Lawrence Welk. He discovered the organ while going to the Sears store with his parents. He taught himself the Magnus chord organ library of books. The organ had 12 chord buttons and a 3-octave keyboard which he played for two years. When he was eleven, his parents bought him a Hammond organ. He took lessons at a store in downtown Chicago with Paul Renard, who became the author of The Music Dynamics Method for Sight Reading, staff organist for Hammond, and co-inventor of the Wurlitzer electric piano which was developed in 1954 at the Wurlitzer Company in Chicago along with Howard Holman.
