Pablo Ablanedo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is a composer, pianist, and music educator. In 1996, he graduated with a diploma in Jazz Composition from Berklee College of Music, where he took part in the last courses taught by the legendary trumpet player Herb Pomeroy. Pablo's artistic development owes much to the Argentinian pianist Susana Bonora, who he has been working with since the '80s.
In 1999, he joined forces with a diverse group of jazz players to form the Pablo Ablanedo Octet. In the decade since the group has recorded three albums on Fresh Sound New Talent Records. From Down There (2001) and Alegría (2004) received 4 and 4½ stars, respectively, in DownBeat Magazine. JazzMan Magazine (France) gave the multi-artist and big band project The Sound of New York Underground (2004) its highest rating CHOC. Pablo's work has also been commissioned by Paquito D'Rivera to be performed by Germany's NDR Big Band. In 2013, on the record label CNM (Creative Nation Music), he released the album ReContraDoble with his Boston based Octet(o). In 2019 Newvelle-Records asked Pablo to regroup the NY ensemble to record Chistreza to be released in March 2020.
A non-exhaustive list of players in Pablo's recordings includes Jenny Scheinman, Ben Monder, the siblings Anat and Avishai Cohen, Chris Cheek, Jerome Sabbagh, Phil Grenadier, Fernando Huergo, Diego Urcola, and Franco Pinna, as well as Aaron Goldberg and Miguel Zenon featuring in the NY big band album.
