View Website

Oscar Feldman: Baritone, Alto and Soprano Sax Pablo Aslan: Double Bass, Javier Sanchez: Bandoneon Emiliano Messiez: Piano Juan Felipe Mayorga: Drums Legendary Meeting between Astor Piazzolla- the Great Guru of Art-Music Tango- and the North American Saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, Considered among the Most Prominent Members of the World Music Scene. "Summit" Is the First Meeting of Tango with Jazz on an Extraordinary High Level. Gerry Mulligan and Astor Piazzolla Knew Each Other from Paris in 1954, Where Piazzolla Studied with Nadia Boulanger and Mulligan Played the Festival Salon DU Jazz. It Took Them 20 Years to Make This Album. This Is Mostly Dark and Moody Music, with a Lot of Tonal Variety and a Resolute Refusal to Fit into Any of the Handy Pigeonholes: A One-Off Event, Wholly Successful.
