Marco Sanguinetti: Inmoral

Read "Inmoral" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Born, raised and still residing in Argentina, pianist-composer Marco Sanguinetti writes jewel-fine, poetic miniatures which bring back a time and place when individual voices of all talents were the wealth and treasure of any civilized society. Quite unlike, without getting too far afield, the mob-speak we're choked with today. The dozen tracks that tell the story of Inmoral, Sanguinetti's seventh, is a mother lode of these shining miniatures. Like haiku, they last. And, as with haiku throughout the ...

Marco Sanguinetti: 9

Read "9" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


After Cómo Desaparecer Completamente (Self Produced, 2016), a collection of Radiohead covers, Argentinian pianist/composer Marco Sanguinetti returns to a program of his compositions. The instrumentation is similar to its predecessor 8 (Acqua Records, 2014): an unusual combination of piano, turntable, cello, double bass, drums, and occasional guitar. So while it is primarily an acoustic ensemble, the scratching lends a prominent electronic color (DJ Migma is definitely a full member of the band, actively contributing on all of the tracks).

Marco Sanguinetti: Cómo Desaparecer Completamente (How to Disappear Completely)

Read "Cómo Desaparecer Completamente (How to Disappear Completely)" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Argentinian pianist Marco Sanguinetti has brought his imaginative, genre-crossing sensibility to projects like “8" (2014), an album of original, Latin-inspired pieces filtered through thoroughly modern stylistic devices, and his work with Pibe-A, which has recorded tributes to Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of the Moon" and Radiohead's “Kid A." Given his track record of eclecticism and ambition, his decision to release a 90-minute double album of Radiohead material doesn't really seem that audacious. Sanguinetti's sound owes a lot to ...

Marco Sanguinetti: Cómo Desaparecer Completamente

Read "Cómo Desaparecer Completamente" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


The first time that Brad Mehldau covered Radiohead's “Paranoid Android" on Largo (Warner Bros, 2002), the idea of jazz interpretations of alternative rock songs was a bit more of a novelty even if a concept that Mehldau had long embraced. That said, taking on a double-disc set dedicated to the output of one pop entity is typically reserved for a group with a body of quality work such as The Beatles. Argentinian pianist Marco Sanguinetti takes on the task of ...

Marco Sanguinetti: 8

Read "8" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Argentine pianist and composer Marco Sanguinetti had established a solid and unique style with his solo effort Improvisiones (MDR, 2005). His penchant for emphasizing percussive effects and recurring variations of phrases are elements that he has consistently employed in his recordings. With El otro (Acqua, 2011) he placed a stronger prominence on lyricism while maintaining a high-density attack. Taking his skills to a new level is what 8 is about and Sanguinetti raises the bar adding stratums of texture, multiple ...

Marco Sanguinetti: 8

Read "8" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni


Argentine pianist Marco Sanguinetti mocks any attempt to position himself in a defined style or genre. This gifted composer and jazz improviser and his trio Pibe-A previously recorded complete interpretations of Radiohead's Kid A and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. But on his fourth solo project, 8 he deliberately focused to write compositions with distinct aesthetics. Sanguinetti's compositions mirror his search for local, urban sounds of his hometown, Buenos Aires. The recording of his ...

Marco Sanguinetti: 8

Read "8" reviewed by Mehdi El Mouden


From jny: Buenos Aires, pianist and composer Marco Sanguinetti digs art from numerous sources to create a feeling which is unique. Quite inspired, Sanguinetti along with his Pibe A group did a remake in 2010 of Radiohead's album Kid A, retorted in 2012 with a remake of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, and was behind several compositions for dance works. Sanguinetti's original work includes Improvisiones (MDR 2005), Los procesos de Franz (Acqua records 2011) El ...
