ABOUT THE ARTIST

He is a composer and pianist extraordinaire. He is a bandleader, lecturer, and visiting professor. He is a chart-topping producer; a Grammy, Latin Grammy and Emmy award winner. He is the recipient of his native country's highest civilian honors. Michel Camilo is all of these things and more, wrapped in a human being of boundless enthusiasm, musical passion, and love of life. The artistry and virtuosity of Michel Camilo bridges the genres of Jazz, Classical, Popular and World music. He is a pianist with a brilliant technique and a composer who flavors his tunes with the spice of Caribbean rhythms and jazz harmonies. To see him perform live is to witness the energy of a tropical storm being unleashed on 88 keys. His exciting Trio also features Grammy award-winning sidemen: master Cuban drummer Dafnis Prieto and virtuoso Puerto Rican bassist Ricky Rodriguez.

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."

His first Live solo piano recording Live in London was recorded at The Queen Elizabeth Hall and will be released worldwide in November 2017.

His extensive discography has been recognized with a Grammy award, an Emmy award, three Latin Grammy awards, JazzWeek’s Artist of The Year award, four Grammy award nominations and two Premios de la Música (Spain), plus several Premios Casandra and El Soberano awards (Dominican Republic).  He has recorded in Solo Piano, Duo, Trio, Sextet, Big Band and with Symphony Orchestras; as well as film soundtracks. He moves with ease between the worlds of Jazz, Latin and Classical music.
