Alejandro Cimadoro's fruitful musical career spans for over 25 years. He was part of the renaissance of Argentine Jazz and Rock, which took place in the early 80s and projected many of that country's bands to the international scene. Alejandro was at the center stage of that process, sharing the stage with rock, pop, tango and jazz legends-such as Nito Mestre, Gabriel Ogando, Mar�a Rosa Yorio, Armando Alonso, Pepi Taveira, Eduardo Casalla, Juan Cruz de Urquiza, Pollo Raffo, Ernesto Jodos, Carlos Lastra and many others. Alejandro's vast experience includes live TV and radio performances, as well as touring extensively Latin America. He has also been a sought-after studio musician, which led him to participate in multitude of recordings. That wealth of experience borne fruit early this year, with the release of his first album as a bandleader, composer and arranger: The Princess and the Moonlight. Alejandro's style is unique, intense and emotive, combining elements of jazz and tango and expanding the boundaries of both genres. His ensemble features George Garzone (tenor and soprano saxophones), Joel Yennior (trombone), Nando Michelin (piano) and Antonio Sanchez (drums).
