“López-Nussa’s single-note grace is akin to Herbie Hancock’s, and his two-fisted attacks are as joyous as Chick Corea’s,” states DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE. “Harold López-Nussa is a heartful man, so it was no surprise that he provided a most upbeat performance. He exudes a bright, happy aura and is assuredly surrounded by angels. He was having a good time, and so were we…this cat was on fire,” raves ALL ABOUT JAZZ (2021 Live Performance Review).
Walk the streets of Havana on any day and you'll hear the soul of Cuba: music pouring from private homes & bustling restaurants, windows rattling with the parties thrown inside, nightclubs pulsing with throngs of people dancing. Acclaimed Vibrant & Spirited Havana-based Pianist and Composer HAROLD LOPEZ-NUSSA sets out to capture that stirring sensation with an exhilarating marriage of Jazz & Cuban pop music. Harold's Blue Note Recording debut album, 'Timba a la Americana', co-produced by Snarky Puppy's founder Michael League, is slated for a Summer 2023 release. 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). Quartet includes GRAMMY® Award-Winning Harmonica Player GREGOIRE MARET who has recorded and/or performed with Prince, Sting, Elton John, among many others. HERBIE HANCOCK has called Maret "one of the most creative musicians around."
