"astringent to sultry, gruff to tender, agitated to buoyant… balancing suave melodies with tense undercurrents"

"sophistication and refinement probably undreamed of by Piazzolla"

Pablo Ziegler's playing style is often compared with Vladimir Horowitz and Bill Evans. Tango maestro Pablo Ziegler — the world renowned pianist and composer who helped shape the modern tango — will bring his Grammy winning-trio to California! Jazz Tango delivers strippeddown, jazztinged arrangements of Ziegler's essential repertoire, offering a raw, elemental concert program.
From fiery, improvised solos to delicately woven ensemble playing, the trio (Ziegler on piano, Hector Del Curto on bandoneon, and Claudio Ragazzi on guitar) delivers unmatched readings of beloved works by Ziegler, as well as modern classics by his late, longtime collaborator Astor Piazzolla. As one the most important living interpreters of nuevo tango, a concert by Pablo Ziegler offers a chance to witness part the living history of this vital musical tradition with his futuristic vision that keeps pushing the boundaries of the genre.
