Opinion de Pablo Ziegler( pianista del quinteto de Astor Piazzolla) sobre Tango en Tres: Me parece una experiencia positiva, se nota la influencia Berklee o su paso por alli, en encarar la música. Siempre me gusta la idea de la fusión jazz y tango, y creo que lo hacen muy bien. Yo creo que es una buena manera de tanguificar la manera jazzistica de tocar, porque creo que es bueno estar improvisando con una fraseología más tanguera que le da a la improvisación un valor agregado. Me parece una gran experiencia. Opinión Leonardo Suarez Paz Julián, por sobres todas las cosas los felicito a los tres, pero considero tu trabajo en especial, el cual por lo que he escuchado llevas la responsabilidad de la melodía, armonía y ritmo desde la guitarra, un trabajo virtuoso.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
