Description

'Un Dia Cualquiera', pianist Harold López-Nussa's second release for Mack Avenue Records, represents a musical vantage point with force and innovation. He tells this story - his story - with drama, heartfelt emotion and consummate skills.

"Every time I return to Cuba, I feel something special - not just a connection with my family and friends, but with the place itself. This is where my music comes from, what it talks about." For 'Un Dia Cualquiera', Lopéz-Nussa sticks to his core trio, with his younger brother Ruy Adrián López-Nussa on drums and percussion, and bassist Gaston Joya - a group the pianist first convened a decade ago in Cuba.

Harold López-Nussa's music reflects the full range and richness of Cuban music, with its distinctive combination of classical, folkloric and popular elements, as well as its embrace of jazz improvisation and interaction. López-Nussa chose the album's title, which means "Just Another Day," because, he said, "the idea is to put the music and the trio together in a studio and just play, the way we three do every day, any day - like a concert in the living room of your house."

"He has mastered the art of jazz piano, as many before him, by maintaining his individual style, enhanced by an innate sense of rhythm that Cuban pianists possess, thus he does not play or sound like anyone." - All About Jazz
