One of the most important contemporary Cuban pianists and arrangers today, the Juno award-winner brings his latin jazz trio to Lula Lounge for two nights – Sept 18 and 25. Featuring Mark Kelso on drums and Roberto Occhipinti on bass.
“Motion” is the exciting new release by the Hilario Durán Trio, feat…uring Roberto Occhipinti on bass, and Mark Kelso on drums. High quality mp3s are available for download. Please visit Alma Records for ordering instructions.
Hilario Durán is ranked among the greats. His Latin Jazz Big Band album, “From The Heart”, featuring Paquito D’Rivera, was nominated for a Grammy in 2007, and won a Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year Juno Award. He has collected three Juno awards (his second on the day he became a Canadian citizen) and over a dozen National Jazz Awards. Hilario was also honoured with the prestigious Chico O’Farrill life time achievement award in Miami.
