2012 is going to be an exciting and very special year for one of Canada’s most celebrated Jazz artists: Jane Bunnett.
Back In February 1982, Jane and her partner Larry Cramer landed in Santiago de Cuba (on the Eastern side of Cuba) and had no idea that the next 30 years would bring them international acclaim for her distinctly original collaborations with some of the greatest musicians in the culturally rich country of Cuba.
As one of Canada’s most celebrated musicians, Jane has garnered 6 Juno Awards, 2 Grammy nominations and a host of other International awards recognizing her music and her mastery of the soprano saxophone and the flute.
Admin note: The Spirits of Havana is the name of the group of Cuban musicians who accompany Jane Bunnett on a given occasion, in this case you’d have to guess it’d be essentially the same band as will be playing with Jane the next evening at Lula Lounge — none other than Son Aché… those who want a good view of the band and no distractions will favor Hugh’s Room, those who have to dance when they here this band play, will flock to Lula Lounge !
