About Elio VillaFranca:

Elio Villafranca is at the forefront of the latest generation of remarkable Cuban pianists, composers and bandleaders that for several years has been making major creative contributions to the international development of modern jazz.  In 2010, he received a Grammy Awards nomination for the Best Latin Jazz Album of the Year, for his performance, composition and co-production in the album Things I Wanted To Do by Chembo Corniel.
He has released three albums as a bandleader that were each well received. His last album, The Source in Between, 2007, remained in the top 10 of the JazzWeek World Top 50 Chart for eleven weeks, and his first album, Incantations/Encantaciones, was ranked amongst the 50 best jazz albums of the year by JazzTimes magazine in 2003. In 2008 Elio Villafranca was also nominated by The Jazz Corner as pianist of the year and he received the Jazz Twirlie Nomination by Dick Crockett, of “The Voice” at 88.7FM, for his album The Source In Between.
Elio has also performed nationally and internationally as leader of his quartet, and as a sideman he has collaborated with leading jazz and Latin jazz artists including: Wynton Marsalis; Jon Faddis; Sonny Fortune; Giovanni Hidalgo; Eddie Henderson; Miguel Zenón; Cándido Camero; and Johnny Pacheco.

Praise for Elio Villafranca:

Latin Jazz Network By Raul d’Gama Rose
“There are few young pianists playing today as skilled in the poetics of the instrument and as versatile as Elio Villafranca, the young, Cuban-born wizard, who now lives and performs in the United States.” 
Descarga.com By Peter Watrous
“If anyone doubted the genius being produced in New York by the meeting between exile Cuban jazz musicians and their North American brethren, they’d only have to check out Villafranca’s new album.” 
Philadelphia Inquirer (Kevin L. Carter)
“Villafranca is an amazing soloist…. In a classical setting, [he] impresses with sweet precision rather than machismo.”
Jazz Times Magazine (Javier Quiñones)  
“Loaded, technically superior, sharp and romantic pianism…”
Philadelphia Tribune (Steve Bryn)
“… Villafranca emotes an expressive, emotional quality enhanced by his technically brilliant approach to the keyboard and his rhythmically complex original compositions..”
Audiophile Audition Review - Review of “The Source in Between” 
“Influenced by a long line of inspired Cuban jazz pianists from Frank Emilio to Emiliano Salvador to Chucho Valdés to Hilario Durán to Gonzalo Rubalcaba to Omar Sosa, Elio Villafranca displays a genuinely original voice on this, his second session as leader.”
