ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Iconic Pianist MICHEL CAMILO shines with LIVE IN LONDON - Grammy®, Emmy® and three-time Latin Grammy® Award winner returns with his first “Live” solo piano album release.

“Bravura gigs don’t ordinarily warrant five stars in my book, but concerts by Michel Camilo – the Latin-jazz piano star from the Dominican Republic – are so astonishing that you abandon all aesthetic doubts and come out with your hands up.” John Fordham – The Guardian

“The spontaneous standing ovation that greets his final bow is not only a result of listeners dumbstruck with admiration. It is the sign of people whose spirits have been lifted.” Kevin Le Gendre – Jazzwise Magazine

“Camilo is as complete a pianist as you could hope to find, able to cope with the demands of quite different musical contexts and having the knowledge and techniques necessary to play them with panache.” Dave Jones – Jazz Journal

In LIVE IN LONDON piano virtuoso Michel Camilo dazzles with a powerhouse performance full of dynamic energy, extraordinary jazz sensibilities and exciting Latin rhythms as he explores a diverse blend of original compositions and swinging standards.

Camilo’s improvisations are always inventive, moving across the entire keyboard smoothly, from lightning two-handed runs to high-speed octaves, and yet he moves his audience by caressing the piano intimately and beautifully in lyrical introspective ballads that showcase his Classical training.

"Here is my first Live solo piano album,” Camilo says “and it is a dream come true since it captures an evening I will always cherish” adds Camilo. Legendary Newport Jazz Festival impresario George Wein says "After all these years I still can't believe what I am hearing. You are a unique artist, individualistic and magnificent."

Produced by Michel Camilo and recorded live at a concert presented by Sandy Strallen and Michelle Gallacher for Completely Concerts at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre on June 13, 2015, LIVE IN LONDON spotlights original compositions such as an extended exploration of his signature song "From Within", a gorgeous "Sandra’s Serenade", and the fiery montuno-based "Island Beat", plus several jazz classics including a bluesy rendition of "The Frim Fram Sauce", an explosively contagious "Manteca", and a medley of quintessential standards "I Got Rhythm", "Caravan" and "Sing Sing Sing".

Born in the Dominican Republic to a family of musicians and composers, Michel Camilo is one of the most brilliant performers in jazz today – as captured in his blazing appearances in the award-winning films "Calle 54", "Two Much" and "Playing Lecuona". He has also developed a reputation as one who enjoys breaking barriers, as evidenced by his extensive discography featuring albums in Duo, Trio, Sextet, Big Band and as guest soloist with Symphony Orchestras. As a prolific composer, many artists ranging from Dizzy Gillespie to The Manhattan Transfer, Paquito D’Rivera to Flamenco guitarist Tomatito, and from Katia & Marielle Labèque to the BBC Symphony Orchestra have performed and recorded his works.

LIVE IN LONDON is a work of art that clearly captures and portrays the multifaceted appeal of Michel Camilo’s pianism as it takes the listener on an exciting musical journey, full of creativity and radiant surprises, along with the uniquely vibrant spirit of a "Live" performance.
