Hailing from Havana, Cuba, composer and virtuosic pianist Harold López-Nussa is rapidly becoming a household name in jazz with a global following. With fellow artists Julio César González and Ruy Adrían López-Nussa, Harold’s tight-knit trio captivates audiences with a relentless vivaciousness that “bridges generations and genres” according to Billboard Magazine. His 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.

His new album Un Día Cualquiera, which was The Most Added on College and Jazz Radio within two days of release, is influenced by music from both countries in ways that transcend narrow notions of “Latin Jazz.” The album nods to classic Cuban composers and musicians, but mostly focuses on López-Nussa’s original compositions and his distinctive trio concept.

“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 Magazine

“Nussa is a genius in the manner in which he pulls together jazz, classical and traditional Cuban styles.” –JazzTimes

You can catch López-Nussa and his critically acclaimed trio at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center on February 9 as he debuts Un Día Cualquiera in Florida for the first time:
