Hot House

about "Hot House"

This year's eponymous debut recording by New York based Cuban jazz ensemble, "Hot House" is fundamentally an homage to the music and spirit of the great Charlie Parker. Conceived, produced and directed by trumpeter Steven Gluzband, Hot House may be considered as much a musical nexus as a band, juxtaposing traditional Cuban dance forms with the jazz idiom, young musicians with veteran players, and Cuban emigres with first and second generation Americans. The result of this remarkable collaboration is a fresh mix that can only be latin jazz from New York City.

It’s been two years in the making, but it’s finally finished.
Steve Gluzband has been on over 200 CD’s with such artists as Celia Cruz, Ray Barretto, Talking Heads, Jimmy Bosch and many others, but this is his first hand at producing.
Featured on this debut recording are Pablo Moya on tres, Chinchilita on percussion, Jorge Bringas on bass, Roman Diaz on bata drums, Itae Kriss on flute and Art Bailey on piano.
