Steve Gluzband

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.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
