Gonzalo Rubalcaba doesn’t politely play the piano: He consumes it and conquers it with dazzling technique and intensity. While his albums with American jazzers have fueled his growing legacy, this jazz-fusion session on Rapsodia, with his regular Cuban group may be a truer portrait. With bravado, dizzying precision and speed, knotty harmonies, and blendings of electric and acoustic keyboards, this is a potent showcase for a young virtuoso who, at the moment, has little interest in relaxing.
