Fabian Almazan began creating some buzz with his sparkling piano chops in trumpeter Terence Blanchard’s group on Choices (Concord Music Group, 2009). Originally from Havana, Cuba, Almazan is not only one of the young rising stars in New York, but is also classically trained and has received a number of awards as a composer in film, chamber and orchestral projects.

Alcanza (Spanish for “reach”) is a nine-movement suite of music that deals with those brief moments in our lives in which one-second changes everything- or at least gives us a remarkable new perception of our condition. It also deals with the process of finding our own path as we go from childhood into adulthood; reflecting the beauty, frustrations, and paradoxes of modern-day life and not giving up on reaching for everything in life that brings us joy and love.
