CD Reviews

Awesome Recording
James J. Phillips | Tampa, FL United States | 10/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disk explodes out of the gates and does not let up. Gonzolo shows respect for jazz while infusing it with his own Cuban touch. He has a powerful even muscular technique that works very well on these compositions. Some people may complain of too many notes but I really have to disagree. This is exciting music to listen to. He stretches out with some real flurries of notes and has fun with it. I love this disk!"
Astonishing debut
Jess Row | NYC | 04/03/2003

"Rubalcaba is an overwhelming talent, and this, one of his earliest CD's, is a blistering assault on the jazz piano tradition--especially witness "Well, You Needn't," and "All the Things You Are." His insistence on using every color on the palette at once makes for difficult listening at times, but the extra effort is worth it, because Rubalcaba is more than just another virtuoso: his playing combines the thoughtfulness of Keith Jarrett with the unrelenting attack of Cecil Taylor (if Taylor played tonal music, that is)."
