Javier Girotto

Javier Edgardo Girotto plays soprano, baritone saxophone, flute, bass clarinet, quenas, sicus. He was born in Cordoba, Argentina and took an interest in music thanks to his grandfather A.L.Caroli, band director, first playing snare drum, then clarinet in E flat in the Infanto Juvenil de Cordoba and in the band of Villa del Rosario, then he changed to clarinet in B flat. For a musician to change from clarinet to saxophone is quite natural. Having chosen sax alto, in Buenos Aires, he looked for someone who could introduce him to jazz, but had no luck. Once again in Cordoba he created his first jazz- inspired groups, and dedicated himself also to commercial music known as “Quartetos”
