Track List


A BEND IN THE RIVER follows upon the success of Occhipinti’s recordings “The Cusp,” “Trinacria” and “Yemaya,” which garnered a Juno nomination in 2005. The musicians come from the talented young pool of Cubanos who have made Toronto and New York their new home: LUIS DENIZ (alto sax), DAVID VIRELLES (piano) and DAFNIS PRIETO (drums.) Strings, winds and trumpet were added. Three tracks feature a full orchestra recorded in Moscow. While the music is not specific to any one country, rhythmically, it makes references to Africa, Brazil, and the Middle East. It is jazz as the original World Music.

Nominated for a 2008 ‘Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year’ Juno Award!
