ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Cuevas possesses gifts as a player and composer, which he marshals to concoct and execute complex music that nonetheless demands almost nothing of the listener. Listening to Uninhibited Realm is like examining a vase that’s been created by someone from a school of artisans known from their flawless craftsmanship. It has no blemishes, no nicks, no rough edges or asymmetries-nothing to betray the identity of the individual who made it, other than his or her affiliation to this particular school.”
-Robert Doerschuk, DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE

“A former Keyboard Unsigned Artist of the Month, Carlos continues to produce top-notch jazz, both as a player and a composer. Carlos perfectly meshes the orchestral textures with his unique trio sound, and I highly recommend you listen to the results. We said it before and we’ll say it again-Carlos is one to watch.”
-Michael Gallant, KEYBOARD MAGAZINE

“A fine jazz pianist and composer, Cuevas expands on his classical influences here. Bolstered by guest star bassist John Patitucci, a vibrant jazz trio set is followed by a three-movement concerto including sixteen-piece chamber orchestra. Sumptuous.”
-Jeff Potter, MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE

“Nos da mucho gusto presentar una nueva crítica de un disco de Carlos Cuevas, quien apareció por primera vez en nuestras páginas como ganador del concurso “Estrella Independiente” hace unos años atrás. Esta vez Carlos nos envió un CD en que se muestra su crecimiento como artista y músico, desde la composición de los temas, arreglos y su técnica, hasta el sonido general del CD. Acompañado por músicos legendarios como John Patitucci en el bajo y Jimmy Branly en la batería, Cuevas se muestra sólido como lider y músico.”
-Rodrigo Sánchez, MÚSICO PRO MAGAZINE

Carlos Cuevas has enjoyed a highly successful musical career. His experience as pianist, keyboardist, composer, arranger, and vocalist has allowed him to work with some of the finest musicians in the business and to explore a wide range of musical situations both in the U.S. and around the world.
Carlos was born in Cambridge, England and grew up in Valencia, Venezuela. His musical training began at age fourteen. While still in Venezuela, he studied classical piano and theory, was introduced to the world of jazz, & performed extensively throughout the country. He moved to the United States in 1993 to further his education, earning a degree in Jazz Studies from the prestigious University of North Texas.
Carlos' diverse musical background and versatility have been put to work with the likes of Bette Midler, Engelbert Humperdinck, The Laws Family: Hubert, Ronnie, Eloise, & Debra Laws, Nestor Torres, Gabriela Anders, and the late Cuban Composer, René Tuzed among others. Carlos' arranging skills are also in high demand. He has composed and arranged music for a wide variety of styles and ensembles that range anywhere from small groups to big bands and orchestras.
In 2004, Carlos released his debut album Depiction, featuring bassist Dean Taba and drummer Jimmy Branly. Depiction quickly became the object of rave reviews from prestigious sources such as Downbeat Magazine (September 2004); Keyboard Magazine (July, 2006); Modern Drummer Magazine (December, 2004); Músico Pro Magazine (February, 2006); Los Angeles Jazz Scene (March & April 2004); and CDBaby.com.
In 2008, Carlos released his second CD entitled Uninhibited Realm. This CD features John Patitucci on acoustic & electric basses, Jimmy Branly on drums & percussion, and a concerto for jazz trio and a 16-piece chamber orchestra. Following the success of his previous work, Uninhibited Realm has also been praised by Downbeat (August 2008); Keyboard (August, 2008); Modern Drummer (September 2008; & Músico Pro (May 2008), thus gaining well deserved recognition in the U.S. and abroad while establishing himself as a respected bandleader. Carlos currently resides in New York City. For up-to-date info, visit www.carloscuevas.net
