Emilio Solla

Born:

Mr Solla got his degree in Classical Piano from the National Conservatory of Music in Buenos Aires in 1986. He studied composition, arranging, counterpoint, improvisation and conducting in Buenos Aires, Barcelona and New York. His former works cover a wide range of styles, from traditional Argentinean tango to classical, from rock to jazz, from theatre to dance, and include many recordings and concerts (in many occasions as arranger and musical director) in Latin America with a large number of well-known tango, pop and jazz singers, such as Jorge Sobral (first Piazzolla’s singer), Cecilia Rossetto, Miguel Cantilo and Alejandra Martin to name just a few. In 1983 he started to compose and play his own music, a fusion of modern Argentine tango and folklore with jazz and other contemporary music styles

Roxana Amed: Ontology

Read "Ontology" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Per il titolo del suo settimo album Roxana Amed ha scelto un termine filosoficamente pregnante, la cui analisi risale ai presocratici. Ovviamente la cantante non s'interroga sull'essere in quanto essere ma restringe il campo alla sua dimensione personale, al suo essere cantante di jazz argentina, con un'identità in equilibrio tra due mondi. «Mi ci ...

Emilio Solla Tango Jazz Orchestra: Puertos: Music From International Waters

Read "Puertos: Music From International Waters" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Tango music was born in the late nineteenth century in the ports along the shore of the Rio de la Plata which flows to the ocean along the border between Argentina and Uruguay. A sound of the poorer locales, it was a melting-pot music, drawing from European, Native American, Spanish-Cuban, African and Argentinian folk music influences. ...

Emilio Solla: Tributango

Read "Tributango" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


There's nothing quite so romantic and life-affirming, in its exuberantly dance-able way, than the tango. It's a sensuous, sinuous sound that bubbled up from the streets of Argentina where bandoneonist/composer Astor Piazzolla found it, and refined it and took it to the concert halls. And in the tradition of all great music, assimilations occur, hand-offs to ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
