Harold Lopez-Nussa trio

“Pianist Harold López-Nussa is the latest in a line of extraordinary keyboardists to emerge from Cuba.” – DownBeat

“López-Nussa’s single-note grace is akin to Herbie Hancock’s, and his two-fisted attacks are as joyous as Chick Corea’s.” – DownBeat

“El Viaje (The Journey),” the title track of Cuban pianist and composer HAROLD LÓPEZ NUSSA’S debut release on Mack Avenue Records, seems to sway gently like a boat in the water–as if readying for a voyage or returning to port after arrival-trumpet and voices whispering memories. This scene aptly describes López-Nussa’s experiences of traveling throughout the world, yet always finding his way back to his hometown of Havana, Cuba. This journey of body and spirit has led simultaneously to a musical exploration where he visits various genres and ideas while staying true to his foundational roots.
