Official Web Site : Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fernando Trueba, who featured Camilo in his documentary film Calle 54, says: Michel Camilo is one of the top all-around musicians. Whether it’s jazz, classical, Latin American music or film music, Michel is in his element. Every time I see him play, I feel like I’m witnessing a miracle.
@ allmusic : Originally playing accordion, he switched to piano when he was 16. After moving to New York in 1979, his song Why Not? became a hit for the Manhattan Transfer and caught on as a standard, and Caribe entered the repertoire of Dizzy Gillespie.
@last.fm : ”The first time I heard jazz was when I was 14 and a half. I heard the great Art Tatum on the radio playing his solo piano rendition of ‘Tea for Two.’ That immediately caught my ear. I just wanted to soak it in, to learn to play that style. Then I found out it was jazz.”
