How would a music sound if we could gather the most refined and beautiful South American traditions with jazz, classical colors and an open-minded fusion with no style? We would get Andres Beeuwsaert's music! As a matter of fact, with Andres Beeuwsaert's music, words are unnecessary and perhaps downgrading. Listening to his music, one could probably find some touches from artists such as Lyle Mays or Keith Jarret...but in his own South American way, Andres is always recreating music!! That's probably why Andres Beeuwsaert has already played with great musicians like Ivan Lins, Joe Lovano, Steve Khan, Hugo Fattoruso, Charly Garcia, Pedro Aznar (ex- musician of the Pat Metheny Group), Mono Fontana, David Lebon, Fats Fernandez, the Brazilian singer Tati Parra, guitarist Yotam Silberstein, Leo Genovese & Javier Malosetti, among many others. Nevertheless, Andres Beeuwsaert is not just a great pianist, but a composer of sublime and captivating masterpieces. And he also performs some of the best compositions of Lyle Mays, Dino Saluzzy, Carlos Aguirre, Hugo Fatorusso, Eduardo Mateo, Léa Freire, Claus Ogerman, Mário Laginha, Javier Cornejo, and Simón Díaz.
Andrew's participation in Aca Seca Trio deserves a separate chapter; a special one! Andres Beeuwsaert, Juan Quintero & Mariano Cantero founded the Aca Seca Trio in 2001. The musical syncretism produced by ACA SECA has already been praised by musicians like Pat Metheny, Egberto Gismonti, Nathan East, Joe Lovano, Bob James, Steve Khan, Pedro Aznar & Luis Alberto Spinetta. The band has released Aca Seca Trio (2003), Avenido (2006) & Ventanas (2009), Hermanos (2014, Aca Seca trio + Diego Schissi Quintet). In 2005 and in 2015, ACA SECA awarded the important prize of Konex, dedicated to 100 outstanding Argentinian personalities of the last decades (also won by Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Mercedes Sosa, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Charly García, and Eduardo Falú). During the last 15 years, ACA SECA has been performing in the US, France, Italy, Spain, China, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela, Ecuador and in their native country, Argentina. In 2014 Aca Seca Trio made his first US tour, performing first at the Spoleto Jazz Festival (Charleston) and offering several brilliant concerts in New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
