Emilio Solla Tango Jazz Orchestra
“Revered by peers, press and audiences worldwide as one of the most personal and interesting composers of the post-Piazzolla generation, Grammy nominated Argentine pianist, composer and bandleader Emilio Solla has chosen Birdland for the official premiere of his brand new Tango Jazz Orchestra, a 17 piece band that incorporates many of the best NY jazz players. Tango meets Jazz by the hands and the pencil of one of the most outstanding composers in the scene.

Solla has written music for and recorded/performed with Paquito D’Rivera, Arturo O’Farrill, Edmar Castañeda, and many others tango and latin jazz greats. His album Second Half was nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award as Best Latin Jazz Album. He continues to tour with his many projects, from duos to symphony orchestras, and is an active freelance arranger and composer in the demanding NY music scene.
