Led by Argentine-born Pedro Giraudo, who has been hailed as one of the most creative and exciting composer/bandleaders on the jazz scene today, this sextet captures the passion and energy of the award-winning Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra. And while its underpinnings are Argentine, it should not be confused with a tango or latin jazz ensemble – the original jazz compositions and arrangements by Pedro Giraudo will catch you with surprising twists, turns, improvisations, instrumental dialogues, harmonies, complexities, rhythms. There’s a hint of South American grooves and a yes, a dash of tango to add to its appeal. Pedro Giraudo, in the tradition of such composers as Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, highlights the unique talents of each band member, masterfully weaving together pre-composed and improvised elements.



Originally from Córdoba, Argentina, Pedro Giraudo moved to New York in 1996. Since then he has become a highly versatile bassist, composer and arranger, performing in a wide variety of musical projects, both his own award winning Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra and as a member of several prominent ensembles, ranging from tango to jazz. He has collaborated with Grammy award winner Pablo Ziegler, 9-time Grammy award winner Paquito D'Rivera, Latin American icon Ruben Blades, and Dizzy Gillespie's protégé William Cepeda, as well as 'Tango meets Jazz' guests: Branford Marsalis, Kenny Garret, Regina Carter, Nestor Torres, Miguel Zenon among many others. He has participated in numerous jazz and music festivals throughout the North America, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia, and performed in major jazz venues in New York and throughout the United States and Japan. His latest album Córdoba (ZOHO Music) won 4 top awards in Latin Jazz Corner's "Best of 2011."
