Pianist and composer Michel Camilo was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 1954. Fascinated with music since childhood, he composed his first song at the age of five, then studied for 13 years at the National Conservatory. At 16, he became a member of the National Symphony Orchestra.

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Born in the Dominican Republic, Michel Camilo's music is rich with Caribbean rhythms that are wedded to engaging harmonic and melodic sensibilities and draw on the whole of jazz over the 20th century. With complex chordal rhythms and melodies that evoke his homeland, Camilo reminds one of both McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea. Besides his own albums, he's also been an important presence on recordings by Paquito D'Rivera. Known for his work in the traditional trio format, Camilo has broadened the scope of the genre via his writing and arrangements, so that the three players take on qualities that are truly orchestral. Cuban drummer Horacio Hernandez and bassist Anthony Jackson are perfectly matched to Camilo's vision. Triangulo dazzles as Camilo's seven new compositions are joined by three well-chosen covers (including Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma"). Quietly nestled amidst the propulsive festivities is the gorgeous ballad "Just Like You," which finds all three players excelling at playing less and less, and at the volume of a whisper. --David Greenberger

5.0 out of 5 stars What a drummer! October 9, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There's an intense interplay between all three players on Triangulo. Michel Camilo plays with wonderful melodic and harmonic imagination, and truly amazing rhythmic intensity. Team him up with Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez , and explosions occur. He's like Elvin Jones and Tony Williams combined. I loved "On Fire", but this one's astonishing. Not all the numbers are fast , I guess to give you a rest , but when they crank it up it sounds like they might break something. This is a beautiful CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars a fine set June 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
mr. camilo is a wonderful latin jazz pianist, but with a different approach than say chu valdes. whereas mr. valdes literally burns up the keyboard, mr. camilo, on this album, takes a lighter approach avoiding the sameness of bossa nova, but with a gentler swing than mr. valdes' eruptions. the nood is more like a warm evening looking over the gulf--the rhythm is there, but it swings like the waves coming in. the orginal tunes shine, but for me the highlights were dizzy gillespie's "con alma" and the haunting, almost nothingness of "just like you." the delicacy leaves leaning toward the speakers to catch every whispered note. enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars His best ever! July 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The interplay with Horacio and Anthony is simply superb. Relaxed but with plenty detail, this record its truly a genuine work of art, the result of a well honed process towards maturity...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful record period. September 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this record because I'm a fan of the bass player, Anthony Jackson. But now I'm a fan of Michel and El Negro as well. What an amazing recording/performance. I especially love the mature, tasteful interplay between all three musicians. Obviously, Michel is the focal point. But the contributions of Jackson and Hernandez must not be overlooked or understated. Their performances have helped make this an instant classic. This is a mature, well-written and executed live recording from start to finish. No wonder it won a Grammy. Wonderful recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jazz, Great Melody, Great Record June 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I saw the trio at the Puertorican Heineken Jazzfest and I thought there just amazing. For those of you who like fast paced Latin Jazz and also a little bit of slow jazz, you will love this record. I just can't seem to put the record down. Buy it!! I'm sure you won't regret it! Keep on rocking to the clave!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Latin Jazz Triangulo Excites May 18, 2002
By Al
Format:Audio CD
Latin jazz is often recorded with large ensembles and heavy percussion-and some of Michel's best recordings have been in this setting. This record, however, is a glimpse at Latin jazz in a trio setting, and these 3 artists offer truly exciting interplay. They unite a focused, intimate approach with startling physicality for a trio. It's important to note that this is not merely a solid Latin or trio record- it's jazz at it's finest; spontaneous and highly expressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars When sidemen rule... March 21, 2007
By inkster
Format:Audio CD get an album like triangulo.

The playing is stellar, the writing , as usual with michel camilo recordings " a little sweet...".

Since I received this it has become one of my very favourites.

To a large extend this is due to the rhythmsection who , In my eyes outclasses Michel, and that means something ,I think...
