“Pianist Johannes Bahlmann has been writing music for himself and others for over 40 years. In the 80s he was a fan of modern jazz; accordingly his early works were inspired by Shorter, Coltrane, Coleman, Tyner… Later he also dealt with genres outside of jazz: funk, blues groove and rock. He says: “In the last few years I have taken up writing fugues again, 300 years after Bach there are really new sounds coming out. I will perform two of them in concert. Bartok really impressed me, so I wrote “Snook”, which opens up the possibility of multi-tone playing. ” Influenced by musician friends from the Balkans, Johannes also writes in unusual time signatures. “And then I am always looking for beauty in melody, which ballads are suitable for. This is my music.” “

“With this very special partner stream from La Habana, Hamburg.Stream presents the incredibly talented Cuban pianist Harold López-Nussa and his new album “Te Lo Dije” (“I told you”). Like with most musicians, COVID-19 has grounded what looked like a highly promising year for Harold. Your support is needed and will mean a lot to him.
His music reflects the richness of Cuban music. He studied classical piano in the best schools in Cuba, and his career gracefully spans a variety of styles, from his recording of Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Fourth Piano Concerto with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra to his role on the album Ninety Miles, where he plays with jazz stars David Sánchez, Christian Scott and Stefon Harris.
“A few notes from Harold Lopez-Nussa are enough to make you smile right away. The Cuban pianist and his band exude such a liberating joie de vivre that you might not even realize ridiculously complex their music actually is, which they present on the album “”Te Lo Dije””. “” – Ralf Dombrowski, Audio 09 2020″
