This is some great Afro Cuban Latin Jazz. I also blogged some video links to his music. Incredible.

“…Happily another good pianist is emerging into the spotlight outside of Cuba—pianist Harold Lopez Nussa. His trio (with saxophonist David Sanchez guesting) has a CD out, El Pais de las Maravillas (World Village), and it’s a good way into Sr. Nussa’s music. On this album Nussa often works closely around and within the Latin rhythmic tradition for both his comping and as implicit or explicit in his soloing. The jazz element takes everything post-bebop as its foundation, from Latin hardbop to Corea-and-beyond fusion. It’s a music of stop and go fusionic kicks, steady-state Latin grooves and good solo performances from Nussa and Sanchez.The rhythm section never flags. They set up the all important clave, post-clave and implied clave that the melodists work off of with success. There are enough contrasts and varied approaches in the 11 cuts that generalizations may not fit absolutely everything. Suffice to say that there is plenty of space for Harold Lopez Nussa to exhibit his gifts as improviser, harmonist, vital rhythmic catalyst, and tune-meister.An excellent addition to this year’s batch of Latin jazz offerings. I suspect we’ll be hearing a great deal more from the pianist. Happily.”

Wow! This is just too hip. Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz on steroids.  Love it.

The unquestioned star of the show was legendary chanteuse, Omara Portuondo who appeared on stage late in the set and stayed around, thrilling the audience with her vocal talents and lively personality. The woman who once sang with Ibrahim Ferrer in the encapsulating scene from Wim Wenders’ film, The Buena Vista Social CLub knows how to work a crowd.
