Pablo Ziegler Quartet with Regina Carter in “Tango Meets Jazz”
Attention, tango fans – featuring one of the genre’s biggest stars plus a stunning jazz violin dynamo, this is the hot event of the year. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Latin Grammy Award-winning pianist, composer and arranger Pablo Ziegler was tango Grand Maestro Astor Piazzolla’s collaborator and pianist for more than a decade. Since then, Ziegler has been reimagining this unique musical form, becoming the finest New Tango musician of his generation.
American Regina Carter is one of the most popular violinists in modern music, known for her warm yet “breathtakingly daring” style (Time Magazine). While firmly rooted in jazz, her influences have range from R&B, African to classical music.
Together, Ziegler and Carter create a musical potion that’s as vibrant as it is positively intoxicating.
The collaboration of Regina Carter with the Pablo Ziegler quartet was originally produced by Pat Phillips and Ettore Stratta at the Jazz Standard in NYC. Featuring the Pablo Ziegler Quartet: Pablo Ziegler, piano; Claudio Ragazzi, guitar; Héctor del Curto, bandoneon; and Pedro Giraudo, bass.
