Marcelo Berestovoy

Marcelo berestovoy's live repertoire is an eclectic mix of Rumba Flamenco, Jazz, Tango, Gypsy swing and guitar driven arrangements of popular, well known songs. His Spanish guitar versions of Beatles songs are among his audience's favorites. Marcelo session/touring and writing credits include some of the biggest names in Latin Pop and Hollywood movies. Marcelo plays over 100 live shows each year and his reputation is rapidly growing around the globe through both his live performances as well as countless instructional guitar videos. In my own words: When I was about 10 or 11 years old, I found two records among my father’s collection that would change things forever: The Beatles Abbey Road and Revolver

Pablo Diaz: Drumming Life

Read "Pablo Diaz: Drumming Life" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Rhythm is in our body and in our blood. The heart beats and our pulse is a sign of life. Instinctively, humans have connected themselves with rhythm from early days until the present. Just think of ancient tribe rituals or the mechanic trance of a techno party.

Many jazz percussionists have dedicated their ...

Read "NendoDango Records: Reinventing Tradition" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Argentinian jazz is in a very good state. Young musicians are gathering in collectives, trying to spread the word. They primarily use platforms such as bandcamp to release their music digitally, although physical formats are also occasionally available. Kuai Music is one of the major new players on the field, but new labels arrive all the ...

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, ...

Calato: Swong

Read "Swong" reviewed by Mark Corroto

There is a word, “earworm" or sometimes the term “brainworm" is used to describe the phenomena of getting a song stuck in your head. One that repeats, and repeats and repeats itself. Usually, it is a saccharin pop song with a hook. Strange, then, to catch an earworm from the songs played by the Argentinian free ...

Miguel Crozzoli / Pablo Díaz: Tierra

Read "Tierra" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

There is a poem by the Swedish poet Gunnar Ekelöf (1907-1968) called “Den svarte bilden" (The black image) in which he tells about an icon whose image is kissed away. It is a spiritual act of love where the image of representation is transgressed.

Interestingly, Ekelöf's poem could be an illustration of what ...

Eduardo Elia: Solo

Read "Solo" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Argentinian pianist Eduardo Elia, based now in his homeland, attended Berkelee College of Music in Boston. He has a handful of CD releases as a leader, and beyond that, information on the artist is hard to find. His internet profile is sketchy.

So the review is all about the music, and maybe that's how ...
