Harold López-Nussa Trio
Havana based composer and pianist HAROLD LÓPEZ-NUSSA is a musician whose musical voice is now being heard around the world. El Viaje (The Journey), López-Nusa’s recent debut release on Mack Avenue Records, visits many genres of music and travels smoothly between Harold’s classical, native and jazz inspirations. Soon after release, the album reached No. 1 on iTunes Jazz Chart and No. 2 on Amazon’s Jazz Chart. The recording features The Harold López-Nussa Trio with younger brother Ruy López-Nussa on drums and percussion, himself a star in the distinguished López-Nussa Family of renowned Cuban musicians. Recent performances at The Montreux, Monterey, Montreal and Tokyo Jazz Festivals; The Kennedy Center; and The San Francisco Jazz Center have fortied Harold’s reputation as a profound musician of rising stature who has fully integrated his classical training and love of the jazz continuum with his Cuban roots and soul.
“Pianist Harold López-Nussa is the latest in a line of extraordinary keyboardists to emerge from Cuba.” – DownBeat
