  • Encore! Professional Concert Series- Odessa/Havana

    odessathumbAward-winning trumpeter and composer David Buchbinder teams up with JUNO-winning pianist and composer Hilario Durán and a crew of Canada’s top jazz and world musicians to present an evening of dynamic Jewish-Cuban fusion.
    “…a high-powered collision of two musical cultures [that] sounds natural, organic [and] brilliant.” –
    “…[Odessa/Havana] is a genuine hybrid, strongly flavoured by Russian-Jewish modality and Afro-Cuban rhythms, but with those strands so strongly intertwined (and grounded in Spanish/Moorish music) as to seem inextricable…[the compositions are] delicately textured and dazzlingly tuneful, but it’s the powerful, swinging and lyrical playing that ultimately sells the project.” – J.D. Cosidine, Globe & Mail
