For decades, Buenos Aires-born, GRAMMY-winning pianist, composer, and arranger Pablo Ziegler has been one of the most important figures in Argentine New Tango, the vibrant musical hybrid of traditional tango, American jazz, and European art music. After performing in tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla’s legendary quintet for over a decade, and appearing on iconic Piazzolla recordings, Ziegler has led his own groups for over 25 years, refining and reimagining the bounds of the modern tango tradition. Recent seasons have seen Ziegler performing at major venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Muziekgebouw, Verbier Festival, Ravinia Festival SFJAZZ, Montreal Jazz Festival, the Ottawa International Jazz Fest, Tokyo Jazz Festival, La Jolla SummerFest, Laguna Beach Music Festival, Blue Note, Birdland, and many others. Ziegler also gives Masterclasses at music academy such as Berklee School of Music, New England Conservatory, Eastman School of Music. Ziegler’s most recent release, 2017’s Jazz Tango won the 60th GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Jazz Album with his trio, Hector Del Curto, and Claudio Ragazzi.
