Las palabras de la pianista colombiana Tatiana Castro Mejía son tan contundentes como sus notas musicales. En su visita a Bogotá nos habló de la violencia sonora, de los medios como educadores musicales y, por supuesto, del jazz.
based in buenos aires, pianist nicolás chientaroli is an active member of the city’s jazz scene where, in addition to his trio, he leads the group, la gran cena; and co-leads the groups los improvisadores gráficos and las formas avanzan. he has also performed with the groups andrés elstein trío, caravana colemanica, proyecto orgánico rave, trío dumpty, francisco salgado cuarteto, and la hormiga.
ViajeraMente is the third album from the trio and the first on pan y rosas. for this album the lineup features chientaroli on piano, carlos álvarez on bass and sebastián groshaus on drums. the album contains a mix of compositions by chientaroli, group improvisations and a cover of dizzy gillespie’s be-bop.

hey everyone. we are beyond excited to tell you that the new awesomeness comes from a quartet of improvisers and jazzniks out of argentina. the group consists of ada rave on saxophones, wenchi lazo on guitar and electronics, martín de lassaletta on bass, and martín lópez grande on drums.
the quartet combines the languages of jazz, free improvisation and out rock of the 60′s and 70′s, as a way of reaching their objective – improvisation! improv as a means of composition and improv as the composition itself. in their music they create diverse spaces, sensory forms, movements, instances and related sounds all the while projecting their own voice and collective identity.
their first album, la continuidad is a fury of sound. intensely focused free improvisations give rise to pre-conceived compositions that allow the quartet to stretch out. they pay tribute to their inspirations – monk, braxton, ornette and dolphy – but, from that starting point, they set off in their own direction. lots of space, lots of listening to each other. quiet studies in the limits of their instruments. swing pulse rhythms on post modern be-bop. a genuine sound of joy.
