Emilio Solla y La Inestable de Brooklyn
Argentina born, Grammy nominated pianist and composer Emilio Solla is able to summarize through this small orchestra his different ideas as composer and arranger in a large ensemble format. Since he moved to NY in 2006, he has been highly in demand as composer and arranger for some of the most iconic names in jazz, world and classical music including Paquito D'Rivera and Arturo O'Farrill, and these experiences have expanded his taste for orchestral color, bringing his writing to a new level of accomplishment.

La Inestable de Brooklyn is a nine piece orchestra with an unusual instrumental combination including two reed players, one trumpet, one trombone, accordion/bandoneon, violin, piano, double-bass and drums. This peculiar ensemble, made up of many different smaller units, can project textures and sounds that evoke a wide range of styles and influences. Commenting on a performance by Solla, The New York Times said "The virile throb of Astor Piazzolla's nuevo tango was omnipresent in the pianist Emilio Solla's stately pulse." But even as the influence of the great creator of modern tango is present in Solla's compositions, he takes here a broader approach, from academic counterpoint writing to free improvisation, from traditional tango and Latin American sounds to a standard trio plus horns that brings at times the classical color of the greatest and most distinctly American art form: jazz music.

In 2015, this band's first album "Second Half" received a Grammy Nomination in the Best Latin Jazz Album category.
