Legendary Astor Piazzolla
Ziegler Featured on Univision NYC
Pablo Ziegler Trio - 2018 Grammy® Winners
The Pablo Ziegler Trio won the 2018 Grammy® Award for "Best Latin Jazz Album" with their exciting release Jazz Tango (ZOHO). Ziegler, who honed his piano and composing skills working with legendary fellow Argentinian Astor Piazzolla, continues developing the style of Nuevo Tango.
On Jazz Tango, pianist/composer/arranger Ziegler presents his US-based trio of world-class Argentinian collaborators Hector Del Curto (bandoneon) and Claudio Ragazzi (guitar). They play three Nuevo Tango standards by Astor Piazzolla and seven soulful, virtuosic originals by Ziegler.
This Grammy® victory follows a win for Best Tango Album at the 2005 Latin Grammys, along with four additional nominations from 2008 to 2016. It also represents a historic first for the genre of Nuevo Tango, as the first major Grammy® win for a Nuevo Tango recording. This year's 2018 Grammy® Award for "Best Latin Jazz Album" further highlights Ziegler's pioneering forward momentum.
In March, Pablo's first solo piano album "Solo Pablo Ziegler" will be released on the Steinway & Sons label.
Among Ziegler's upcoming concert dates, two special engagements include:
1) US premier of his new work called "12 Horas" - Argentina Meets Japan on September 21st in Denison, OH at Denison University - Swasey Chapel - Vail Series.
2) Pablo Ziegler Ensemble & Paul Taylor Dance Company on Sep 14th at Virginia Tech - Moss Art Center.
"There's no question that Ziegler takes the tango to levels of sophistication and refinement probably undreamed of by Piazzolla." --The Chicago Tribune

Nilson Matta SAMBA MEETS JAZZ
@ The Jazz Forum
Friday & Saturday Feb. 23rd & 24th
1 Dixon Lane
Tarrytown, New York 10591
Sets 7pm and 9pm
Eric Alexander-tenor saxophone
Performing music from Duke Ellington, Monk, Jobim, Mingus,Toninho Horta, Stanley Turrentine, Noel Rosa and much more music from the American and Brazilian song book.
All this mixed with exciting Brazilian and American rhythm combinations!
2009 Grammy nominee Nilson Matta has been a creative force in the evolution and popularity of Brazilian Jazz in the United States. It was not long after he came to New York in 1985, that he was performing and recording with Grammy-winning jazz greats Kenny Barron and Joe Henderson, as well as Herbie Mann, Lee Konitz, Claudio Roditi, Paul Winter Mark Murphy , Slide Hampton, Paquito D’Rivera, Nancy Wilson and many more. Drawing from these collaborations, and from his work with Brazilian luminaries such as Hermeto Pascoal, Joao Gilberto, Luis Bonfa, and Johnny Alf in Brazil, (to name a few), Matta has developed his own musical signature making him a first-call bass player of Brazilian music and jazz musicians. It’s not surprising therefore, that when Yo Yo Ma sought band members for his Brazilian project, Nilson was the obvious choice for bass. Their recording of two Grammy CDs(ObrigadoBrazil and Brazil – Live in Concert) prompted a two-year worldwide touring every corner of the globe.
A founding member of internationally acclaimed group – Trio Da Paz. Matta has emerged in recent years as bandleader, composer, arranger and producer. In 2008, he released Walking With My Bass, an autobiographical CD incorporating special guests from his long and distinguished career. His next release, Nilson Matta’s Brazilian Voyage - Copacabana on Zoho Records takes the listener on a musical journey through Brazil’s diverse geographic regions–via Matta’s artful arranging of classics masterpieces (e.g.,VillaLobos), not to mention Matta’s original compositions such as Baden and Copacabana which have earned him wide acclaim as a composer.
February 12TH 2013 Nilson released on MOTEMA Records his 3rd CD as a leader “NILSON MATTA’S BLACK ORPHEUS” revisiting the music from the film 1958 and the play 1956.
Matta is committed to passing on his talents and experiences to the next generation of bassists. He is a member of the International Society of Bassists, making frequent appearances as a featured guest and performer at the ISB conventions.
He has taught at NYC’s Bass Collective, Litchfield Jazz Camp, and has conducted master classes worldwide. As Artistic Director of Samba Meets Jazz Workshops in Bar Harbor Maine (SmJ-Bar Harbor) and Samba Meets Jazz Workshops – Brazil (SmJ-Brazil), he has become a leading figure in promoting the music he is passionate about – Brazilian Jazz.
