Cool Jazz Conversation with Grammy Winner Gonzalo Rubalcaba

  Broadcast in Music

Call in to speak with the host


Gonzalo Rubalcaba is a jazz pianist. A prolific virtuoso and composer, he fuses Cuban and American influences into a powerful and innovative hybrid. Known for his stupefying and unbridled command of the keyboard throughout the 90s, his recent work has shown broader range.
 Few jazz pianists are better equipped to deliver a breathtaking solo recital than Havana-born Gonzalo Rubalcaba. The conservatory-trained master has integrated huge swaths of the European classical and jazz traditions, while maintaining bone-deep ties to the rhythmic currents of Cuba. Rubalcaba quickly gained fame on the American scene in the early ‘90s through the efforts of famed bassist Charlie Haden, who was blown away by the young virtuoso.
Creatively, everything the pianist touches turns to gold. He’s earned 15 Grammy nominations and won two Grammy Awards for his ravishing collaborations with Haden on Verve, Nocturne and Land of the Sun, and two Latin Grammy Awards for Solo and Supernova (both on Blue Note). Solo piano is the ideal setting for the maestro’s exquisite touch, which you can hear on his sublime new album, Fé (Faith), as well as some of his much-anticipated music from his upcoming release
