Recently nominated for a Grammy for his work on Terence Blanchard's "Breathless", pianist and composer Fabian Almazan found his musical roots as a child in his homeland of Havana where he first became involved in the classical piano tradition. Fabia later moved to New York City to study with Kenny Barron at the Manhattan School of Music (MSM). During the completion of his bachelor's degree, Almazan immersed himself in the realm of orchestral composition studying instrumentation and orchestration. While at MSM Almazan composed several pieces for orchestra and chamber ensembles. Fabian has written several film scores and can be heard on several Spike Lee films as well as George Luca’s Red Tails among other films. - Co-Sponsored by the Jazz Department and the Oberlin Jazz Society
