Update Guillermo Klein

Primary Instrument: Piano

The craft of composition has been a part of Guillermo Klein’s life since his childhood in Argentina. Klein’s father presented him with a piano when he turned 11 years old and, inspired by the legendary Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla, he promptly began his experimentation with writing songs.

Klein left Argentina to attend Berklee College of Music after hearing a moving speech by the former dean Gary Burton about his relationship working with Piazzolla. Klein intended to study classical music on his arrival but found himself among peers that were passionate about jazz.

Featured recording “Carrera”

Latest Release

Carrera

Sunnyside Records (2012)
”There are many memorable individual efforts, but the accent is unmistakably on the orchestra as a whole, which fully realizes its role through Klein's ingenious use of music and interpretation to capture one's imagination.” - Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz

”Some albums are simply a collection of discrete songs; others are broader works where the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts. With Una Nave, Argentinean pianist Guillermo Klein has created a boldly sweeping album that transcends its individual components. While these sixteen pieces can be assessed in terms of stylistic roots, specific performances, and compositional élan, these considerations are really secondary to the greater impact they have when experienced as a 66-minute whole.” - John Kelman, All About Jazz

”...this is the rare CD where plentiful musical variety only gives an impression of hungry and far-reaching giftedness”not arrogant hubris or lack of focus.” - Paul Olson, All About Jazz
