Carmen Cavallaro (May 6, 1913 – October 12, 1989) was an American pianist born in New York. He established himself as one of the most accomplished and admired popular music pianists of his generation. Cavallaro developed a piano style of glittering and rippling arpeggios to augment his melody, which was often arranged in thick and lush triple and quadruple octave chords. He was originally trained in classical piano, which is evident from his superlative technique. In fact, he recorded more than a few classical works, although popular music was most prominent in his repertoire.
