David Buchbinder's Odessa/Havana Short Info

Odessa/Havana presents “dazzlingly tuneful music, with powerful, swinging and lyrical playing”, that is “passionate, dancing and completely irresistible.” Arising out of the musical ferment of the most diverse city on the planet–Toronto–this sound is created by the writing of award winning trumpeter David Buchbinder and Grammy-nominated Cuban piano master Hilario Durán, and a band of some of the best musicians anywhere. Together, these forces take audiences on a journey of cross-cultural discovery through the hidden connections of Afro-Cuban and Jewish music through a jazz lens: a journey that engages, challenges and delights. Their two CDs have been honoured with a 2014 JUNO Award and a Canadian Folk Music Award, many nominations, as well as over 100 rave reviews including a profile in Down Beat in March, 2014.. When this band hits the stage, you know there will be “…terrifically exciting, hard-swinging fireworks!”
