Adrián Iaies and Horacio Fumero not only are very good friends, they have been playing together for a long time, first in Argentina and later all around the world. They represent the most international acclaimed generation of Argentinian jazz musicians. Combining jazz and Argentinian tango and popular music (Piazzolla, Spinetta, Gardel…) they have come out with a very personal and intimate sound all together.
Adrián lives in Buenos Aires, pianist, composer, arranger and producer, has been nominated three times to the Grammy Awards, and is the artistic director of the Buenos Aires Jazz Festival. Horacio is based in Barcelona, where he combines pedagogy with performances. He was in the trio of the great Spanish pianist Tete Montoliu for over twenty years, and now is one of the most requested bass players in the jazz scene.
“Conversaciones desde el arrabal amargo” reflects the essence of Argentinian popular music, but jazz spirit also, in a double recording session: one at the studio (día/day), and the other one live (night/noche). With special guest artists: León Gieco, Roxana Amed and Mariano Loiácono.
