The culmination of Dayramir Gonzalez’s journey as a young Havana-native who continues and brings the Afro-Cuban music legacy to New York is synthesized in his latest album The Grand Concourse, a name inspired by the thoroughfare that runs through the Bronx and a concept that reflects the uncommonly dynamic range of pieces from the pulsating West African bass motif found in “Situaciones en 12/8” to the contemporary take on the classical Cuban tradition of the late 19th century to the haunting orchestral jazz ballad of “Blood Brothers.” Dayramir is making his mark as a leading international composer, orchestrator, bandleader and pianist.
