Wikipedia : This day (May 27, 1963), in Havana, Cuba, is born Gonzalo Rubalcaba, a Grammy Award-winning Cuban jazz pianist and composer.
Gonzalo Rubalcaba : He has developed his own very distinctive voice, challenging the traditional musical classifications of the day. His art continues to evolve and draw inspiration from both his Afro-Cuban heritage and the world around us.
@allmusic : One of the most important figures to emerge from Afro-Cuban jazz in the ’90s, he is an extraordinarily versatile pianist able to blend disparate strands of Cuban and American jazz tradition into a fresh, modern whole.
@last.fm : Known for his stupefying and unbridled command of the keyboard throughout the 90s, his recent work has shown broader range. He used to play with drummer Horacio ‘El Negro’ Hernández in the 80’s, back in the days when they were still unknown in the international musical scene.
