4-Day Streamed Jazz Fest "HotHouse Meets Havana" Starts Jan. 21

"Jazz Plaza: HotHouse Meets Havana" the four-day internationally streamed jazz festival begins at 7 p.m., CST, Thursday, Jan. 21. Programming, recorded in advance, will be streamed internationally on HotHouse's streaming platform. The event is co-produced by HotHouse director, producer, curator and founder Marguerite Horberg and Raul Cuza; and is sponsored in part by Cuban Instituto de la Musica and Ministereo de Cultura.

Featured artists for the Jan. 21 program are as follows:

  • Roscoe Mitchell. Saxophonist Mitchell is considered one of the key figures in avant-garde jazz, integrating influences from everywhere—world music, funk, rock, classical—to create music that is at once beautiful and complex. He has performed on more than 85 recordings and written in excess of 250 compositions in the jazz and classical realms.
  • Harold Lopez-Nussa. Lopez-Nusa, a graduate of the Instituto Superior de Artes, spent three years in the touring band of Grammy Award-winner Omara Portuondo. In 2005, he won first prize in the Jazz Solo Piano Competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival. He released his ninth album, "Un Día Cualquiera" in 2018.
  • Hamid Drake and Michael Zerang. Drake is widely regarded as one of the best percussionists in jazz and improvised music, playing alongside many renowned artists pianist Herbie Hancock, saxophonist Pharaoh Sanders and bassist Reggie Workman, among others. As a percussionist, composer and collaborator, Zerang has more than 100 titles in his discography and has toured to 35 countries since 1981, and working with collaborators, primarily in U.S. and Europe.
  • Bobby Carcasses. In 1980, Carcasses organized the first Jazz Plaza Festival, bringing to Cuba a host of international artists including Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Haden and Airto Moreira. The festival became an annual event, with Carcasses and his band performing each year. He also toured extensively throughout Europe and the USA, performing alongside Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri and many other big Latin jazz names.

Host for the Jan. 21 program is Larry Blumenfeld who writes regularly about jazz for The Wall Street Journal. His culture reporting has appeared in The New York Times, Daily Beast, Salon and Village Voice among other publications and websites.

Prior to the program, HotHouseGlobal hosts a free 30-minute winter dance party beginning at 6:30 p.m. CST with DJ Madrid. Madrid's has shared his exceptional talents, sophisticated style, and contagious excitement around the world in venues ranging from a private palace in Istanbul, to The World DJ Conference in Korea to an intimate lounge in Paris. A fan of HotHouse, Madrid is creating a special DJ set for HotHouse to open the festival each night. Everyone is encouraged to bring mix up their favorite Cuban cocktail and break out their best dance moves.

"Jazz Plaza: HotHouse Meets Havana" runs Jan. 21-24. There is no paywall, however viewers are encouraged to contribute or purchase a ticket. More information is available at hothouse.net.
