Felipe Lamoglia is a Cuban saxophonist, composer, and arranger, born in Holguin, Cuba. At the age of 18 a scholarship came from the prestigious Superior Institute of Arts (ISA), the most important University of Music in Latin America. His big professional opportunity came at age of 18, being hired to play with NG La Banda, one of the most acclaimed Cuban orchestras ever. Felipe funded his own Orchestra called Oni-Ache, traveling to Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1992 for a musical exchange program with the University of Sao Paulo and went on to live in Brazil for seven years.
It was later, in 2004 when Felipe joined the GRAMMY Award-winner Gonzalo Rubalcaba, recording his GRAMMY Award-nominated album “Paseo”, released by the prestigious Blue Note Records. Around this time he kept on performing for two years with the New Cuban Quartet all over the world. In 2006 he arranged and played on Ignacio Berroa’s new album “Codes”, also released by Blue Note Records and nominated for a GRAMMY as well. This led to performing with Mr. Berroa’s quartet in diverse tours.
Recently Felipe worked as a producer in Arturo Sandoval’s latest album “Rumba Palace”, which won a GRAMMY Award in 2008, being in charge of all the arrangement and composing. By the end of 2007 his first solo album “Dimensions”, recorded in Brazil, was released. This project incorporates his Afro-Cuban roots with strong influences of Jazz and Brazilian music. “I can assure you no other place in the world deserves my solo debut more. I really hope that everyone who in one way or another has followed and supported my music through all these years can enjoy this album and receive my sincere thanks through all my music.”
