"As usual, Camilo's pianism is remarkable, not only where technique is concerned, but moreover, for the range and beauty of his sound. The many moods Camilo conveys could not be achieved without his control of the instrument at its most intimate level." Billboard

"Camilo's playing has a Classical feel, making full use of his left hand and exhibiting phenomenal control of dynamics. Thunderous chords yielded seamlessly to exquisitely soft passages, and a stupendous end to the medley earned Camilo a standing ovation."  The Boston Globe

OKeh is proud to release GRAMMY, Emmy, and Latin GRAMMY Award winning pianist and composer Michel Camilo's new album, What's Up? The project is the Dominican Republic-born musician's debut for the label and is OKeh's second overall release as part of the new re-launch initiative via Sony Classical, which focuses on documenting "Global Expressions in Jazz." Produced by Camilo and recorded by also GRAMMY Award winning engineer Phil Magnotti the 11 tracks provide a stunning demonstration of the pianist's originality, spotlighting seven original compositions and four arrangements of jazz and Latin standards. Tracks include: 'Alone Together,' an exploration of Cole Porter's 'Love For Sale' and a deep soulful re-discovery of Compay Segundo's 'Chan Chan,' as well as in Camilo's own words, "my take on the perpetual polyrhythmic intricacies of 'Take Five' - as a personal nod of admiration and awe to the legacy of legendary master Dave Brubeck."
