RealTracks Artist Bio: Rebeca Mauleón


RealTracks Pianist and Producer Rebeca Mauleón is one of the world's leading performers and authorities in the field of Latin and Afro-Cuban music. She is first and foremost an award-winning musician, composer, and bandleader with a compelling stage presence, but also a published author and reviewer, a tenured professor at City College of San Francisco, and a guest lecturer at U.C. Berkeley.

Rebeca is a dynamic presence in the San Franciso Jazz community. She is found performing regularly at Yoshi's and other top Jazz venues in San Francisco, or in concert with Latin Jazz legends like Arturo Sandoval, or (in her role as SFJAZZ Education Director) leading the discussions at SFJAZZ Hotplate concerts. A regular on the festival circuit, Rebeca has appeared at the Kennedy Center's "Women in Jazz" festival, the Monterey Jazz Festival, and San Francisco and San José Jazz Festivals.

In the recording studio, Rebeca is a Grammy-nominated producer with a growing discography of both her own works and albums she has produced for other artists. She is a member of The Recording Academy (GRAMMY Awards) and The Latin Recording Academy (Latin GRAMMY Awards). Her three solo releases - "Round Trip," "Latin Fire," and "Descarga en California" – spent months in the Top 10 on the Latin Beat Hit Parade. "Descarga en California" features Giovanni Hidalgo (congas), Orestes Vilató (timbales & bongos), and special guest Armando Peraza (bongos) of Santana fame, and is widely available at all major online retailers. She has also recorded with such leading artists as Tito Puente, Carlos Santana, Israel "Cachao" Lopez, Steve Winwood, Joe Henderson, and Mickey Hart.

Rebeca's compositions range from symphonic works and Afro-Cuban Jazz to music for film, television, and even computer games. They have earned her the "Meet The Composer's" New Residencies Award, the Sundance Composers' Fellowship, and a commission by the Oakland East Bay Symphony.

As an author, Rebeca has published definitive Latin music texts including "Salsa Guidebook for Piano and Ensemble," "101 Montunos," and "Muy Caliente." She is the co-editor of Sher Music's "The Latin Real Book" and a regular contributor to leading music magazines including JazzTimes, Keyboard, Grammy Gateway, Modern Drummer, Mix en Español, and Bass Player. She also serves as a music consultant for National Geographic and Time/Life.

Rebeca's association with PG Music dates back to the release of "The Latin Pianist" program, a collection of Afro-Cuban (Salsa) and Brazilian piano performances that she composed, performed, and documented. The program remains a unique and invaluable resource for the enjoyment and study of Latin music. Ever since, she has been a valued contributor to Band-in-a-Box styles, RealDrums, and RealTracks as both producer and performer. Her participation in any project ensures that the musical content and performances will be of the highest standard. And always exciting!
