Jane Bunnett

 

continued

The Caribbean island is small, but it is the home of many different musical traditions, and its music is continuously evolving; Bunnett and Cramer work with young Cubans to keep in touch with new developments. Spirits of Havana's latest release celebrates the music of Cuba's Guantánamo and includes one of the last recorded performances by the late saxophonist Dewey Redman.

Though the Cuban connection dominates Bunnett's work, she also keeps expanding her musical horizons, recording her versions of folk songs from around the globe with a band augmented by a string quartet, or exploring American gospel. And one should never forget that she is above all a great soprano saxophonist. Many play the instrument but few have mastered it, and she has done her teacher Steve Lacy proud by developing a rare individual voice on this horn.

The Spirits of Havana visit the Firefly Club on Saturday, November 4.
