„Duo wuchs sich beim Tango zum Dreigestirn aus“

Er hat ihn wahrscheinlich verinnerlicht, den modernen Tango. Schließlich war Pablo Ziegler jahrelang Pianist in der band von Astor Piazzolla. Jetzt brachte er das Tangofieber in den Jazzclub „domicil“. Mit seinem „New Tango Duo“, das gar nicht als Duo daher kam. Mit dem jungen Bandoneonspieler Walter Castro und dem Gitarristen Quique Sinesi bildete Ziegler nämlich ein argentinisches Dreigestirn. Traditinelle Tangostücke und Milongas, Kompositionen von Astor Piazzolla als auch eigene Stücke von Ziegler standen auf dem Programmdes Trios, das mit ungeheurer Virtuosität miteinander kommunizierte. Da suchte Walter Castro stets den Blickkontakt zum Pianisten, um mit ihm im gemeinsamen Unisono die so markanten Tango – Rhythmen seiem Instrument zu entlocken. Vielfältig waren dabei die Stimmungen, von überschwenglicher Lebensfreude bis zu seelenvoller Besinnichkeit. Quique Sinesi vervollständigte die Melodien mit Teils ungewöhnlichen Sounds auf der E – Gitarre. Im Triospiel aber ging der excellente Gitarrist meist ein wenig unter. Wie gut, dass es deshalb immer wieder verschiedene Duo-Konstellationen gab. Diese öffneten vor allem in Zieglers Kompositionen Räume für improvisatorische Einfälle

TJ NlesonCD: Bajo Cero

 

It’s easy to understand why Argentinian pianist Pablo Ziegler has been described as the successor to the phenomenal Astor Piazzolla. His latest venture, with guitarist Quique Sinesi and bandoneon virtuoso Walter Castro, Bajo Cero, based on their tour, leaves little doubt of his remarkable contribution to Tango Nuevo.

 

The music is smart with just enough of a jazz flair to appeal to tango fans and to make it accessible to listeners unfamiliar with traditional tangos and milongas. Milonga “La Rayuela” opens the CD and wows the listener with fast paced piano and bandoneon work. “Flor de Lino,” one of three traditional tangos on this CD, slows the pace and charms with its interplay between guitar and piano. “Chin Chin,” a piece written by Piazzolla, exudes passion and demonstrates the improvisational skills of these three talented musicians. Ziegler’s composition “Milonga del Adios” walks the listener through the passion and melancholy of the Argentinian soul in this slower piece. Quique Sinesi’s composition entitled “Planufer Milonga” is a stunning track with a little Candombe-inspired rhythm tossed in for interest.

 

Bajo Cero illustrates the talents of this remarkable trio. One could only hope that Pablo Ziegler, Quique Sinesi and Walter Castro continue touring and come up with another CD as sharp and delightful as this recording.

CD: Bajo Cero – by George W. Carroll

 

The latino musical culture has many wonderful & varied nuances, exemplified by this Pablo Ziegler-Quique Sinesi-esque clutch of keen, ethereal originals penned by Ziegler. The disc will delight the sensibilities of any diehard latino jazz aficionado.

 

Pablo writes with an ‚urgent‘ style which (I feel) will prove to be his forte‘ in CD projects to follow featuring his original compositions. I don’t mean to offer my views in any presumptuous manner………But, I relegate my readers to the positive ‚gypsy‘ influences Pablo has offered in the vernacular of ‚Django‘ or, something maybe “Grappelli‘ might have interpreted or written. My point here is that Pablo could have easily (In the past) given these two musical giants his music to record, & I think both Django & Grappelli would emerge edified by Pablo’s art. Last, this CD is a confident & new direction in original music, & might I add, it’s timely as well.
