Cork Jazz Festival – Pablo Ziegler Trio – 27th October ’18
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, GRAMMY award winning pianist Pablo Ziegler artfully blends classic tango rhythms with jazz improvisations, adding a new voice to the tango lexicon.
In 1978 he joined Astor Piazzolla’s New Tango Quintet, performing with them for many years throughout Europe, Japan and North America.
Pablo Ziegler formed his own Quartet for New Tango in 1990 and has been touring extensively throughout the world with his trio, quartet and quintet.
His studio album Desperate Dance was released in 2015 and the live version Jazztango received a GRAMMY Award in 2018.
The trios performances in recent seasons have included Lied Centre in Nebraska, Arts! San Antonio, the Belleayre Music Festival in upstate New York, among many others.
