Konzert: Sotavento Big Band
Sotavento Big Band from Argentina, mixes the melodic and rhythmic patterns of Tango with the
harmonies and improvisation of Jazz. This new approach to Tango and Jazz has received an enthusiastic reaction both in Argentina as well as internationally. The music of SBB goes from the traditional tango to the music of Astor Piazzola without never abandoning the territory of jazz.

“A fascinating variety of textures in the wind with deep bass lines of the tenor saxophones", Ian Mann de “The Jazz Mann” Gales, UK.
“The band made a version of Tanguera that was a nice mix of tango and jazz ""Lance Liddl de “Bebop spoken here” Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
“Another group that provided at the Buenos Aires International Jazz Festival 2017 a different slant on the tradition was the 13-member Sotavento Big Band. In addition to a standard rhythm section, the group featured only woodwinds—five tenor saxophones, two
clarinets and one alto. This unique combination of sonorities was employed to perform jazzoriented version of traditional and modern tango.” By Matk Holston published January 31,2018 in “All About Jazz”
