"Andres is a genius. He is one of the great pianists-composers of today". IVAN LINS
How would a music sound if we could gather the most refined and
beautiful South American traditions with jazz, classical colors
and an open-minded fusion with no style?
We would get Andres Beeuwsaert's music!
As a matter of fact, with Andres Beeuwsaert's music, words are
unnecessary and perhaps downgrading.
Listening to his music, one could probably find some "touches"
from artists such as Lyle Mays or Keith Jarret...but in his own
South American way, Andres is always recreating music!!
That's probably why Andres Beeuwsaert has already played with
great musicians like Ivan Lins, Joe Lovano, Steve Khan, Hugo
Fattoruso, Charly Garcia, Pedro Aznar (ex-musician of the Pat
Metheny Group), Mono Fontana, David Lebon, Fats Fernandez, the
Brazilian singer Tati Parra, guitarist Yotam Silberstein, Leo
Genovese & Javier Malosetti, among many others.
Nevertheless, Andres Beeuwsaert is not just a great pianist, but a
composer of sublime and captivating masterpieces. And he also
performs some of the best compositions of Lyle Mays, Dino Saluzzy,
Carlos Aguirre, Hugo Fatorusso, Eduardo Mateo, Léa Freire, Claus
Ogerman, Mário Laginha, Javier Cornejo, and Simón Díaz .
Andrew's participation in Aca Seca Trio deserves a separate
chapter; a special one!
Andres Beeuwsaert, Juan Quintero & Mariano Cantero founded the
Aca Seca Trio in 2001.
The musical syncretism produced by ACA SECA has already been
praised by musicians like Pat Metheny, Egberto Gismonti, Nathan
East, Joe Lovano, Bob James, Steve Khan, Pedro Aznar & Luis
The band has released "Aca Seca Trio" (2003), "Avenido" (2006) &
"Ventanas" (2009), "Hermanos" (2014, Aca Seca trio + Diego Schissi
In 2005 and in 2015, ACA SECA awarded the important prize of
Konex, dedicated to 100 outstanding Argentinian personalities of
the last decades (also won by Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel,
Atahualpa Yupanqui, Mercedes Sosa, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Charly
García, and Eduardo Falú).
During the last 15 years, ACA SECA has been performing in the US,
France, Italy, Spain, China, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela,
Ecuador and in their native country, Argentina.
In 2014 Aca Seca Trio made his first US tour, performing first at
the Spoleto Jazz Festival (Charleston) and offering several
brilliant concerts in New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
About Aca Seca Trío (where Andres Beeuwsaert is a founder):
"(...) those guys seem to be great musicians. So nice to hear so
"“What wealth our continent has! I congratulate the band.
Beautiful music produced by the best musicians.”
"I had the great privilege of attending the first concert in New
York, and the USA, by Argentina's extraordinary group, Aca Seca
Trio (...). They performed many of my favorites pieces, and
everything they played was beautifully executed and received with
excitement and love for an adoring audience. I greatly admire
these three wonderful musicians for their vision, and the courage
to pursue it, even if logic would seem to be saying to them, "you
can't possibly succeed playing music that is neither 'this' nor
'that' - but, in the end, none of this matters, because they are
doing something that is, to these ears, completely unique on this
-BOB JAMES wrote directly to Andres Beeuwsaert (Bob James is the
pianist of the super group Fourplay, with Lee Ritenour, Nathan
East, Larry Carlton, Harvey Mason & Chuck Loeb):
I discovered your music from a recommendation from guitarist Steve
Khan. (...). We all LOVE your music with Aca Seca Trio (...). We
have become big fans!!!!
Congratulations!! This is fantastic!!!
