Alejandro Cimadoro

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).

Jazziz Magazine: Best Releases of 2004
“The Princess and the Moonlight -- Alejandro Cimadoro Quintet (CimaJazz). Argentine bassist Cimadoro’s talents as a composer and arranger are fully realized on this refreshing mixture of free-form pieces, bebop and restful balladry. Uruguayan pianist Nando Michelin and Mexico City-born drummer Antonio Sanchez complement the [George Garzone] saxophone and [Joel Yennior] trombone front line and the leader‘s luxuriant bass work.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
