Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Bio

He is considered one of the world’s jazz stars. He earned 15 Grammy Awards nominations and won-with Jay Newland and Charlie Haden producing-as Best Latin Jazz Albumcome with “Nocturne” (2002). He has collaborated with the world’s greatest jazz musicians:(from Dizzy Gillespie to Herbie Hancock, Richard Galliano to Ron Carter, to name a few.

His projects, in solo piano and band, move in both the jazz and classical music worlds. His artistic repertoire has never stopped evolving going to Afro-Cuban sounds, traditional Cuban and Mexican ballads, boleros, and classical Cuban works.

He has always challenged traditional musical classifications to transform daily routine into beauty with his music. Downbeat wrote that Rubalcaba has the ability to make simple what is very complicated.

Since 2010 Rubalcaba has been producing and recording for his own record label and production company, 5Passion LLC.
