Harold Lopez-Nussa - Banlieues Bleues

Harold Lopez-Nussa; El Viaje; Harold Lopez-Nussa, piano; Alioune Wade, bass; Ruy Adrian Lopez-Nussa, drums, bongos, cajón; This prodigious heir to the great Cuban piano school displays his deeply inventive technique, in search of an all-encompassing form of jazz. Over the past ten years and since his first solo album, the virtuoso pianist, who trained at the best music schools in Havana, has made a number of recordings exploring his influences as a classical pianist and his Cuban roots. He is back with a trio, his favourite format, including Senegalese bass player Alioune Wade and his brother on percussions. His remarkable style serves an open form of jazz, more mature and supremely inventive. World class. Recorded on 15 March 2017 at Espace 93, Clichy-sous-Bois, as part of the 'Banlieues Bleues' Festival; TV director, Guillaume Dero (57 min)
