Mi Gran Pasion album for sale Product Description

Mi Gran Pasion album for sale by Gonzalo Rubalcaba was released Mar 28, 2007 on the Pimienta/Universal label. A pianist of virtuosic technique and high visibility (he is a fixture at major jazz festivals and recorded for Blue Note throughout the 1990s), Gonzalo Rubalcaba mixes traditional Latin styles, modern jazz, and classical flourishes to achieve a sound that is dazzling, unique, and frequently danceable. MI GRAN PASION, originally released in 1987 and re-issued in 2004, draws heavily on the danzon--a traditional Cuban dance, popular in the '50s, that fuses Cuba's folk melodies with European harmonic structure and African polyrhythms. For a record of "traditional" music, MI GRAN PASION is remarkably eclectic. Quick as a blink, Rubalcaba can shift gears from delicate lyricism a la Bill Evans to majestic, Beethoven-esque rumbles and chordings to funky, deep Latin grooves, peeling off dense, fluidly improvised solos all the while. Aided by a crack band of horns (which replace the traditional role of violins in the danzon) and rhythm players (the bassist and percussionists here add as much orchestral color as groove), Rubalcaba resurrects the danzon with a postmodern twist on this excellent, one-of-a-kind recording.   ...See Full Description
