Plot Synopsis:

Oscar®-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque, Calle 54) and Spain's legendary illustrator Javier Mariscal celebrate the music and culture of Cuba with an epic story of love, passion and heartbreak.

Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and desire unite them as they chase their dreams and each other from Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas. With an original soundtrack by legendary Cuban pianist and five-time Grammy®-winning composer Bebo Valdes, CHICO & RITA captures a defining moment in the evolution of history and jazz, and features the music of (and animated cameos by) Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Tito Puente, Chano Pozo and others.

This limited-edition Collector's set includes the full-length Latin Grammy®-winning soundtrack and a hand-picked, 16-page excerpt from The New York Times bestselling graphic novel based on the film. The soundtrack features songs written and performed by Bebo Valdes, as well as the music of jazz legends Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie and many more.
