Abrazo The Havana Sessions - Hot Miami Nights
Dayron was an instrumental part of the team which created the upcoming release ABRAZO: THE HAVANA SESSIONS, a PARMA-produced double album recorded November 9-13, 2015 in Havana, Cuba. As with all recording sessions, there were more than a few moving parts and Dayron helped keep some particularly crucial ones spinning in the right direction.
The majority of compositions in this great double album were written by the aforementioned musicians. The two Bunny Beck Suites, both arranged by the saxophonist Juan Manuel Ceruto, take us on a rhythmic journey where son, danzón or cha-cha-cha are sublimated. In this Rolando Luna stands out in the piano.
