Gonzalo Rubalcaba

Gonzalo Rubalcaba is considered one of the greatest Cuban pianists of his generation. His encounters with Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Haden in the 1980s allowed him to showcase his talent in the United States and around the world. Since then, Gonzalo has released more than 40 albums under his own name, recorded with Ron Carter, Al Di Meola or Chick Corea and played five concerts at the Montreux Jazz Festival, the first of which was immortalized on the album Discovery – Live at Montreux, released on the Blue Note label in 1991. The pianist recently founded his own academy, called Rubalcademy, and won his third Grammy Award for the album Skyline, recorded with Ron Carter and Jack DeJohnette in 2021.
