The Pablo Ziegler Trio won the 2018 Grammy Award for “Best Latin Jazz Album" with their exciting release Jazz TangoAstor Piazzolla, continues developing the style of Nuevo Tango.

On Jazz Tango, pianist/composer/arranger Ziegler presents his US-based trio of world-class Argentinian collaborators Hector Del Curto (bandoneon) and Claudio Ragazzi (guitar). They play three Nuevo Tango standards by Astor Piazzolla and seven soulful, virtuosic originals by Ziegler.

This Grammy victory follows a win for Best Tango Album at the 2005 Latin Grammys, along with four additional nominations from 2008 to 2016. It also represents a historic first for the genre of Nuevo Tango, as the first major Grammy win for a Nuevo Tango recording. This year's 2018 Grammy Award for “Best Latin Jazz Album" further highlights Ziegler's pioneering forward momentum.

In March, Pablo's first solo piano album Solo Pablo Ziegler will be released on the Steinway & Sons label.

Among Ziegler's upcoming concert dates, two special engagements include:

September 14
Pablo Ziegler Ensemble & Paul Taylor Dance Company at Virginia Tech (Moss Art Center).

September 21
U.S. premier of his new work called “12 Horas." Argentina Meets Japan in Denison, OH at Denison University (Swasey Chapel- Vail Series)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
