Pablo Ziegler's Tango Meets Jazz

Pablo Ziegler Quartet with Special Guests

*** Pablo Ziegler nominated for two 2013 Latin Grammy Awards ***

"It is called Nuevo Tango for its blending of jazz and the more traditional tango. But in the hands of Pablo Ziegler, it is, above all labels, transcendent music."
— Montecristo Magazine

"He is cool, understated and makes everything look easy and natural... Just as a really suave tango dancer seems not to move with feet but on wheels, Ziegler skates the keyboard."
— Los Angeles Times

With Tango Meets Jazz, Latin Grammy award winning pianist and composer Pablo Ziegler and his tango quartet invite today’s most exciting jazz luminaries to tackle classic tango repertoire and original Ziegler compositions with bold, spontaneous jazz-tinged interpretations. Previous guest artists have included Regina Carter, Stefon Harris, Branford Marsalis, Paquito D’Rivera, Kenny Garrett, Joe Locke, Randy Brecker, David Sanchez and Nestor Torres.

Produced in association with Pat Philips and Ettore Stratta, Pablo Ziegler’s Tango Meets Jazz has been presented annually at Birdland Jazz in NYC since 2011, and before that as Tango Meets Jazz at the Jazz Standard for over 10 years. It has toured internationally with engagements at the Chan Centre in Vancouver, the Lied Center in Nebraska, the University of Colorado in Boulder, the Norton Center in Kentucky, and the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco.
