Octave - 2011
Octave cover
Called Octave because it is the label's eighth release, the album is chock-full of great music, including fresh new talent and a returning artist, showcasing some of Berklee's top jazz players from around the world. The bandleaders hail from Cuba, Israel, Italy, Mozambique, Norway, and the United States, each bringing a unique perspective to their original compositions in varied styles of jazz--contemporary, straight-ahead, old school bebop, Latin, experimental, piano trio ballads, and progressive.

"Of special note this year is Cuban artist Dayramir Gonzalez. He has upped the ante in terms of sound. We captured the true spirit of modern Cuban music despite the difficulties of recording a larger band and the cultural differences in working together," says Kevin McCluskey, faculty advisor and executive producer for Jazz Revelation Records. "Dayramir is considered by many to be a leading Young Turk amongst Cuba's incredible up-and-coming pianists."
