First Recording in Three Years To Be Released On Blue Note Records, Sept. 28

Following the success of his Grammy Award-winning Blue Note recording, Supernova (2001), pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba will return to center-stage with the September 28th release of Paseo, after a three-year recording hiatus.

Recorded with an all-Cuban quartet, (veteran drummer Ignacio Berroa, electric bass player Jose Armando Gola; and soprano, alto, and tenor saxophonist Luis Felipe Lamoglia) Paseo represents Rubalcaba's decision to approach Cuban musical traditions from a more focused but relaxed perspective.

The CD promises to be an intriguing paseo (walk) through the Cuban-born pianist
