Harold López-Nussa Trio
Show location: WELLFLEET PRESERVATION HALL
“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
Payomet Performing Arts Center is pleased to present Havana based pianist and composer Harold López-Nussa at Wellfleet Preservation Hall for a matinee show on Sunday, November 3.
It’s hard to imagine the U.S. jazz scene without the influence of the many Cuban musicians living here. Yet the musicians who remain in Cuba—whose relationship with jazz and other musical forms stays grounded in their native island’s cultural traditions and daily life—maintain a unique perspective. They tell a specific story.
Harold's most recent release visits many genres of music and travels smoothly between Harold’s classical, native and jazz inspirations – and the album reached No. 1 on iTunes Jazz Chart and No. 2 on Amazon’s Jazz Chart. The Harold López-Nussa Trio features 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 fortified Harold’s reputation as a profound musician of rising stature who has fully integrated his classical training and love of the jazz continuum with his Cuban roots and soul.
