Pablo Ziegler QuartetPablo Ziegler Quartet
With Tango Meets Jazz, Latin Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Pablo Ziegler artfully blends classic tango with elements of jazz, adding a new voice to the rich tango lexicon. His tango-jazz quartet invite today’s most exciting jazz luminaries to tackle classic tango repertoire and original Ziegler compositions with bold, spontaneous jazz-tinged interpretations. After collaborating with tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla as the pianist in Piazzolla’s quintet for over a decade, Ziegler has led his own groups for over 20 years, refining and reimagining the bounds of the New Tango tradition.
This season, Ziegler will team with 36-year-old, three-time Grammy nominee, acclaimed vibraphonist, and composer Stefon Harris. Harris’ passionate artistry, energetic stage presence, and astonishing virtuosity have propelled him to the forefront of the current jazz scene. Widely recognized and lauded by his peers and jazz critics alike, his work explores the rich potential of jazz composition while blazing new trails on this often overlooked instrument.
