One of the most important figures to emerge from Afro-Cuban jazz in the ’90s, Gonzalo Rubalcaba is an extraordinarily versatile pianist able to blend disparate strands of Cuban and American jazz tradition into a fresh, modern whole.
The multi-Grammy Winner, pianist and composer Gonzalo Rubalcaba was already a young
phenom with a budding career in his native Cuba when he was discovered by Dizzy Gillespie in
1985. Since, Piano & Keyboard Magazine selected him in 1999 as one of the great pianists of
the 20th century, alongside figures such as Glenn Gould, Martha Argerich and Bill Evans. He has
won two Grammys and two Latin Grammys, 16 Grammys nominations and EMPIK Bestsellers.
All of which has established him as a creative force in the jazz world.
