This recording by Jane Bunnett and Larry Cramer, partners in music and life, has been widely recognized as a groundbreaking project and highly praised for its many qualities. It received a Juno Award in Canada for Best Jazz Album of the Year in 1992. The All Music Guide cited Spirits of Havana as one of the top 300 jazz discs of all times, calling it “a pivotal album.”

Spirits of Havana will always set the bar for any other recording endeavor of ours and will always be our firstborn in Cuba, a recording that we hold dear to our hearts.”
