As a developer of the Argentinian chacarera into the jazz tradition, Huergo has recorded three highly original albums on which he acts as composer, bandleader and bassist: Jazz Argentino, Live at Regattabar and now Provinciano. His band has featured saxophonists Chris Cheek and Andrew Rathbun, flutist Yulia Musayelyan, pianist Mika Pohjola and drummers Jeff Ballard and Franco Pinna.
