November 30, 2004

These six CD’s have a contemporary sound, with variations of traditional jazz, especially on saxophones and piano. There are between three and nine musicians featured on each CD, featuring instruments, such as cello, bass, electric organ, and clarinet. These CD’s compliment the recent NY Underground Jazz festival from Buenos Aires that premiered at the Argentine Consulate, NYC, on November 1, 2004.

CD’s by Musicians:

Luis Nacht – Smooth Jazz, features sax and flute. Includes traditional jazz references, with mellow, conversation with piano.

Juan Pablo Arredondo -- Features generous guitar passages, staccato clarinet, and muted bass.

Ernesto Jodos Cambio de Celda – Features soft piano with fascinating percussion and cello for moody and meandering sound.

Mariano Otero – Features cello and bass in dissonant and varying rhythms and attitude.

Fernando Tarres -- Features guitar and piano with sometimes eery conversations and counterpoint.

Rodrigo Domínguez -- Features sax and clarinet with smooth and sensual compositions. An electric organ adds depth.
