The piano plays a special role in helping to define the sound of Latin Jazz. The powerful block chording, ascending and descending keyboard runs and percussive style of play used by the piano masters of Latin Jazz have made the instrument a rhythmic backbone of the genre, just as much, if not more so, than a melodic and harmonic tool. Two of the greatest living Latin Jazz pianists performing today are featured in PIANO LATINO.

Eddie Palmieri has a discography that includes 36 titles and a career honored by nine Grammy Awards. The legendary pianist thrills audiences throughout the world with his unique style, charismatic power and bold innovative drive.

Michel Camilo, the Dominican-born winner of a Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album, is a virtuoso pianist with technique to spare, who flavors his tunes with the spice of Caribbean rhythms and jazz harmonies.
