Gabriel Palatchi Trio
September 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15
Born in Buenos Aires, Brazil in 1982, Gabriel Palatchi started piano lessons at an
early age. By the time he graduated from Berklee School of Music, Argentina, in
2007 he had studied classical piano and been tutored by maestros in blues, tango
and jazz. This was followed by a stint in Cuba studying Latin jazz under the great
Cuban musician Chucho Valdez. A move to Mexico in 2008 coincided with
composing his own music. The result, “Diario de Viaje (2010)” received critical
acclaim and was voted one of the top latin jazz albums of the year by Jazz FM
Toronto. He went on to record a further 3 albums that cemented his unique sound,
culminating in his 4th and latest album, “Made in Canada” (2017), which also
happens to be his first live recording.
For the past 8 years Gabriel has been performing at major international music
festivals, touring throughout Mexico, Canada and Europe. His music is broadcast
across radio stations all over the world from Alaska through to South America,
Europe, the Middle East and Australia. It has been reviewed and featured in Rolling
Stone Magazine, Latin Jazz Network, Ejazznews, All About Jazz, Jazz Caribe, The
Toronto Star, Salsa Son Timba Colombia, Newstime South Africa, and Inside World
Music amongst many others.
The CD, “Trivolution” was selected as the Gold Medal Winner in the
Composer/Album categories; achieved TOP TEN status in the 2015 “Global Music
Awards”, and also featured in the “Emerging Artists” section of the April 30th, 2016
issue of BILLBOARD MAGAZINE.
Gabriel Palatchi’s appearance at the club is part of a forty-stop cross Canada tour.
