Roberto Fonseca - ABUC (IMPULSE! RECORDS 2016)

Impulse! is pleased to announce the release of the next album by Roberto Fonseca. 

Born in 1975 in Havana, Cuba, Roberto Fonseca has established himself over the last decade and a half as one of the most gifted — and most popular — pianists of his generation. 

After making his name with Ibrahim Ferrer in the legendary Buena Vista Social Club™, and after his recent GRAMMY© nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album, Roberto Fonseca has come to incarnate the meeting between jazz with the music of Cuba, both today and yesterday, and also its African roots.

The new album ABUC will be available from October 28 next, with pianist-percussionist Fonseca accompanied by Trombone Shorty, Eliades Ochoa, Zé Luis Nascimento, Rafael Lay (Orquesta Aragón) and Manuel 'Guajiro’ Mirabal, among many others.

After Snarky Puppy and Ibrahim Maalouf, impulse! reaches out to a new audience with Roberto Fonseca and the claim that, today like yesterday, Jazz is cool!
