Joel Forteza Joel Forteza

Melodías Lechugas is an artistic Jazz-Rock project led by traveler and composer Joel Forteza.

The band was assembled in November 2018 and the concept was created in June 2017.

The album was recorded in Munich in July 2018 in the Starseed by Frank Schlaipfner who acted as producer of the album.

After traveling for 5 years around the world, creating and playing music around the more than 25 countries that the Argentine singer-songwriter Joel Forteza has visited, he returns to Buenos Aires with an eclectic musical proposal, where various Latin musical genres are mixed, with nuances of jazz fusion, and progressive rock.

Currently the band is presenting the album managed independently.


”From Argentina lands one of the strongest alternative promises of this year. Joel Forteza presents a solid and different work, one of those that generate expressions of surprise for the listener and with a Replay Value that will wear out the loudspeakers of your stereo.” La Werk Magazine

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.
