Throughout his career, Camilo has never been afraid to look for musical inspiration. Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 1954, he came from a musical family. Camilo started out playing accordion before switching to piano at age nine. A self-taught student of American jazz, he first heard piano legend Art Tatum on the radio, and his love for jazz soon led him away from Santo Domingo.
In 1979, he and his wife moved to New York. Camilo spent three years as a member of Paquito D'Rivera's band, where he gained experience and recognition. His self-titled Epic debut shot to the top of the jazz charts in 1988 and several more critically acclaimed albums followed, including On Fire, On The Other Hand, Rendezvous and One More Once.
In 2000, Camilo's Verve release, Spain, with flamenco guitarist Tomatito, won Best Latin Jazz Album in the first-ever Latin Grammy Awards. Camilo also appeared in the acclaimed Latin jazz film Calle 54 directed by the Oscar-winning Spaniard Fernando Trueba, as well as on the recent soundtrack recording for the film.
When talents as formidable as Michel Camilo, Anthony Jackson and Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez get together to make music, it's an event. Their distinct voices converge on Triangulo, a scintillating musical conversation between three masters whose versatility seems to have no limits.
