Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra

”The SoHo Rentals” is a Modern Jazz duo conformed by Alejo Nobili on piano and Matias Menarguez on drums.

The band was formed in 2012 and is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their music blends Jazz with different musical genres, giving as a result a certainly unique sound, introducing South American rhythms and Argentine folk music, with a personal and modern approach. Their sound could remind the likes of Vijay Iyer trio, Robert Glasper trio, Mark Guiliana and Now vs Now, among others.

The band have been exhaustively playing in lots of different venues in Buenos Aires for the past year....

May 22, 2013 'TSR33' REVIEW by ArgentJazz.com.ar 'Alone, but well accompanied' “TSR33″, the third and flaming record by 'The Soho Rentals', consisting of Matias Menarguez and Alejo Nobili, renewes the local jazz scene with an original and creative work. Only piano and drums, for a recording which deserves an unprejudiced and attentive listening. ​ '​The SoHo Rentals', duet consisting of pianist Alejo Nobili and drummer Matias Menarguez, enjoy the release of their third record, 'TSR33', an original and creative work which deserves to be on 'Top Releases' of the local jazz scene.  With a minimum set-up, only piano and drums, but with a huge variety or resources, Nobili & Menarguez accomplished an honest, singular and creative record, full of different moods and musical nuances.  Seven of nine compositions which are included on the record, are originals by the musicians. Four of them by Nobili. For instance, “La Hora”, the beautiful melody which opens the record, the percussive “Hermes”, with its changeling and frenetic rhythms, and “Cortezas', with the author's piano showing it's more introspective side.  Three songs composed by Menarguez, all of them with varying intensity. “Sol”, a slow-paced song, where the band shows it's clear and consistent duo work. “Desde Lejos”, ironically, the only piano solo composition on the album, and “5 de Febrero”, with it's almost hypnotic melody, with the drums coming forward and then gently retreating, delivering one of the most interesting passages of the CD. Completing the third album work by the duo, who will be playing in NYC all through July playing this new record, there are two versions of classic rock&roll songs. The always charming 'Don't let it bring you down' by canadian Neil Young, played in a powerful and subtle way, and 'Heroes' by David Bowie.  Summing up, this is one of those records which captures one's attention on it's first listen, but then unravels all of it's details, subtleties and hidden colors to whom comes back, willing to new and attentive listening.
