Fernando Otero Trio

Thursday, September 14
8PM One Show Only

"Mr. Otero vibrantly summoned tango ancestors while also acknowledging Bartok and Prokofiev. His brilliant playing bore traces of jazz pianists like Bill Evans and Don Pullen. The resulting synthesis proposed bold new directions for a venerable tradition.” – The New York Times

The innovative Argentinean pianist/composer Fernando Otero will be in residency at Zinc Bar on Thursdays in April, performing with the Brazilian violinist Andrei Matorin and Argentinean percussionist Ramiro Scalzi.

Otero, a leading figure of a pan Latin American jazz movement flourishing in New York, has developed a unique and provocative style he calls “X Tango” – a fast-paced and intense music that combines the improvisatory thrill of jazz with a contemporary classical structure. His critically-acclaimed albums “Pagina de Buenos Aires” and the Latin Grammy Award–winning “Vital” have established him as internationally recognized artist. His shows at Zinc will feature new work and compositions from recent albums: “Radio Angel”, a sensuous blend of tango and jazz, and "Romance", which was praised as "darkly ravishing" by the New York Times.
