Harold Lopez Nussa
A fine set by a brilliant Cuban pianist
There is a long and apparently endless string of great jazz pianists emerging from Cuba.
Harold López-Nussa was born in Havana as part of a very musical family.
He started on piano when he was eight, had extensive classical training, and worked with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra in 2003; two years later he appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival where he won a piano contest.
Since 2007, Lopez-Nussa has led nine albums and made his mark on the jazz and Cuban music worlds.
Leading a quartet with trumpet, electric bass and drums, Harold López-Nussa is featured performing a set of his originals including the melodic “Habana sin Sabanes,” “Paseo,” the catchy “Y la negra bailaba,” and “Van Van Meets New Orleans.”
