Pablo Ziegler's Tango Conexion: "From Piazzolla to Ziegler'" Guest Vocalist Sandra Luna - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Pablo Ziegler's Tango Conexion: "From Piazzolla to Ziegler'" Guest Vocalist Sandra Luna
Featuring Special Guest: Argentinian vocalist Sandra Luna.

Pablo Ziegler, modern Tango/Jazz Pianist and Composer, is showing his versatility at Birdland, with his Quartet consisting of Hector Del Curto on Bandoneon, Pedro Giraudo on Bass and Jisoo Ok on Cello. Produced by Pat Philips & Ettore Stratta.

This is a journey of Tango with Classical overtones, the past with the contemporary, the need to redefine and renovate.

Pablo Ziegler, Latin Grammy-winning Pianist/Composer blends classical tango rhythms with jazz improvisations, adding a new voice to the Tango lexicon. Howard Reich of The Chicago Times writes "There is no question that Ziegler takes the Tango to levels of sophistication and refinement probably undreamed of by Piazzolla." Eric Saltzman of Stereo Review writes, "the outstanding representative of the Nuevo Tango in his generation." Ziegler toured for years with Piazzolla and is now out on his own with his quartet and trio making stops all over the world with guests Paquito D'Rivera, Joe Lovano, Gary Burton, Emmanuel Ax and Christopher O'Riley. He also performs each December in "Tango Meets Jazz" (also produced by Philips & Stratta) with guests such as Branford Marsalis, Regina Carter, Stefon Harris, James Carter, David Sanchez, and many more. For this special Birdland engagement, Pablo has invited vocalist Sandra Luna to join him on several numbers, in what will be his first time appearing with a vocalist in NYC!

Sandra brings a passionate, sometimes pained voice to both classic and new Tango songs. "Tango encapsulates the whole life," Sandra says, "everything that brings the senses to life." Luna was born and nurtured in the tangopolis, the subculture of Buenos Aires Tango and moved among the giants of Tango Caucion such as Edmundo Riverom Roberto Goyenache and Nellyomar and has shared sets with Antonio Agri's orchestra Sextet Mayor at Carlos Gardel's house.

On her international debut album 'Tango Varon', Sandra performed classics such as 'Homero Manzi' and Aribal Troilo's 'Che Bandoneon,' as well as later songs by Piazzolla. Her vocal style melds the influence of great tango singers like Mercedes Simone and Nelly Omal with non-tango influences of Edith Piaf and Ella Fitzgerald.

"Classic to Nuevo" -- "Piazzolla to Ziegler', Maestro Ziegler with Special Guest Sandra Luna will be captivating, dazzling, romantic...and reach inside one's heart and soul.
