The SoHo Rentals
The SoHo Rentals is a Modern Jazz duo conformed by Alejo Nobili on piano and Matias Menarguez on drums.
The band was formed in 2012 and is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their music blends Jazz with different musical genres, giving as a result a certainly unique sound, introducing South American rhythms and Argentine folk music, with a personal and modern approach. Their sound could remind the likes of Vijay Iyer trio, Robert Glasper trio, Mark Guiliana and Now vs Now, among others.
The band have been exhaustively playing in lots of different venues in Buenos Aires for the past year.

'TSR33' REVIEW by ArgentJazz.com.ar
'Alone, but well accompanied'
“TSR33″, the third and flaming record by 'The Soho Rentals',
consisting of Matias Menarguez and Alejo Nobili, renewes the
local jazz scene with an original and creative work. Only
piano and drums, for a recording which deserves an
unprejudiced and attentive listening.
'The SoHo Rentals', duet consisting of pianist Alejo Nobili
and drummer Matias Menarguez, enjoy the release of their
third record, 'TSR33', an original and creative work which
deserves to be on 'Top Releases' of the local jazz scene.
With a minimum set-up, only piano and drums, but with a huge
variety or resources, Nobili & Menarguez accomplished an
honest, singular and creative record, full of different
moods and musical nuances.
Seven of nine compositions which are included on the record,
are originals by the musicians
