PHIL MANZANERA AND JACK BRUCE PLAY CONCERT IN CUBA – 27 February, Karl Marx theatre

Phil Manzanera returns to the city where he first began learning the guitar, aged 6 years old, back in 1957. Phil will be playing in concert with his longtime friend, Augusto Enriquez, the celebrated Cuban singer. Phil is also delighted to announce that Jack Bruce, the legendary bassist and singer from Cream, will be appearing with him at this not-to-be-missed very special concert.

The concert will take place on 27 February at Havana’s famous Karl Marx theatre, as part of the annual Habanos Festival. It’s a return visit for Phil, as he last played this venue in 1992 and recorded there the first ever multitrack live album in Cuba with Augusto Enriquez’s band, Moncada. The album, ‘Manzanera Moncada Live at the Karl Marx,’ was released on Manzanera’s label, Expression Records (www.youtube.co/watch?v+BZ6e7sdBntM). Phil is greatly looking forward to playing alongside the great Jack Bruce: they have previously performed together at the Guitar Legends Festival in Seville in 1991 (www.youtube.com/watch?v+MZDmj7Kuw70) and at the San Remo Music Festival.
