*ABOUT THE ARTISTS

PEDRO GIRAUDO JAZZ ORCHESTRA – July 27, 7:30 pm
The amazing and acclaimed composer and bassist Pedro Giraudo, presents his
band, which boasts some of New York’s finest jazz musicians, and has
performed regularly in the most prestigious jazz clubs in the New York City
area, including the Jazz Standard, Birdland, The Jazz Gallery, Blue Note,
Joe’s Pub, as well as abroad. John Murph of Downbeat described Giraudo’s
music as “an opulent listening experience of modern, orchestral jazz,
brimming with passionate improvisations, deliberate contrapuntal melodies
and plush harmonies.” Chip Boaz of Latin Jazz Corner offered this analysis:
“The rich eloquence of Giraudo’s gorgeous artistic expression flows through
the music with an undeniable grace. “C√≥rdoba tells a story of innocence,
discovery, and unbridled emotion, expressed delicately through the colors of
Giraudo’s finely tuned compositions.”
