On Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018 from 5-9pm, world-class jazz artists Harold López-Nussa Trio with Special Guest Pedrito Martinez will join forces to bring a spectacular jazz evening at the upcoming El Sentinel's Hispanic Heritage Latin Jazz & Art Festival at Lake Concord Park.
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 helped shape Harold’s reputation as a profound musician with a Cuban heart and soul.
