Dayramir González Habana enTRANCé Quartet

September 16, 2023 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

The Vermont Jazz Center kicks off 2023-2024 season with exciting cutting-edge Cuban Jazz featuring the Dayramir González Habana enTRANCé Quartet.

Cuban Pianist Dayramir González performs with his quartet, Habana enTRANCé with James Robbins (bass), Juan Chiavassa (drums), & Taka Nikaido (percussion).

González’ playing is reminiscent of his compatriots Chucho Valdés & Alfredo Rodriguez. He possesses blazing technique that was developed through rigorous practicing in the classical tradition & supercharged by an embodied sense of internalized rhythms.

González has twice won first place in Havana’s JoJazz Festival & earned three Cubadisco Awards, considered the Grammys of Cuba.

Bassist James Robbins, a former student & junior instructor of the Vermont Jazz Center who is now an established player on the New York scene. Robbins has released one album as a leader & played with Clark Terry, Billy Taylor, George Benson, James Moody, Freddie Hubbard, & many others.

Argentinean-born drummer Juan Chiavassa, graduated from Berklee College of Music on a Zildjian Scholarship Award after attending Escuela de Música Contemporánea in Buenos Aires. He has worked with Mike Stern, Paquito D’Rivera, Esperanza Spalding & many others.

Percussionist Taka Nikaido has performed with Yosvany Terry, Terence Blanchard, Paquito D’Rivera, Artruro O’Farrill & others. Nikaido received a “Best Foreign Entrant” award in La Fiesta del Tambor in Cuba & performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival.
