A BEND IN THE RIVER is a recording by Toronto bassist/Composer Roberto Occhipinti. Long noted for his involvement in Latin Jazz notably as bassist with the Hilario Duran trio and Jane Bunnett’s Spirits of Havana and as producer of David Buchbinder’s Odessa/Havana project A BEND IN THE RIVER marks a change of direction for Roberto Occhipinti. Building upon the success of his 2005 Juno Nominated disc “Yemaya” and the critically acclaimed discs “The Cusp” and “Trinacria” A BEND IN THE RIVER features the talents of pianist David Virelles, Alto Saxophonist Luis Deniz and drummer Dafnis Prieto in a featured quartet setting augmented by Strings and Winds. While these musicians may be Cuban born, the project is definitely a Contemporary Jazz record performed by musicians living in Toronto and New York
