Harold López-Nussa is at BOMBYX Center for Arts and Equity this Sunday, November 7th co-presented by Blues to Green. Havana-based pianist and composer Harold López-Nussa sets out to capture that stirring sensation with an exhilarating marriage of jazz and Cuban pop music, defiantly standing up to the doubters who failed to share his radical vision
Harold López-Nussa is rapidly building a global following in jazz and beyond. His tight-knit quartet captivates audiences with a relentless vivaciousness that “bridges generations and genres” (Billboard). His music reflects the full range and richness of Cuban music, with its distinctive combination of classical, folkloric, and popular elements, as well as its embrace of improvisation. López-Nussa has performed at esteemed venues The Kennedy Center and SFJAZZ Center, as well as some of the best jazz festivals in the world: Newport, North Sea, Monterey, Montréal, Detroit and Playboy.
Harold will be performing with legendary harmonica master Grégoire Maret and renowned bassist Luques Curtis. Grégoire is a Grammy-winning harmonica player who has previously played alongside Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, and Prince. Luques is an upright bassist who has been featured in bands of legends like Gary Burton and Eddie Palmieri. Grégoire and Luques will join Ruy López-Nussa, Harold’s brother and longtime drummer to fill out the band. Harold and Ruy have performed individually with both Grégoire and Luques on previous occasions but this will be the first tour with all four on the stage together. Their blend of influences and experience is sure to make for a spirited and exciting performance.
