An opulent listening experience of modern orchestral jazz, brimming with passionate improvising, deliberate contrapuntal melodies, and plush harmonies. –DownBeat
A stunning new big band release from New York-based bassist-composer Pedro Giraudo features eight originals, all powerful musical memories of his Argentinean home province, Córdoba. Previous album, El Viaje, swept top honors in Latin Jazz Corner s Best of the Year Awards, winning 2009 Latin Jazz Album of the Year, and Latin Jazz Large Ensemble Album of the Year.
Since his arrival in New York in 1995, Giraudo has performed and recorded with Latin Grammy Award winners Pablo Ziegler and Fernando Otero, and with Kenny Garrett, William Cepeda, and Juan Carlos Formell.
