Album Notes
"La verdad es que me ha fascinado sobrertodo la forma de tocar el saxo barítono de Jorge Retamoza. Sus composiciones son interesantisimas también "
Paquito D'Rivera

" Really I was fascinated by Jorge Retamoza baritone saxophone playing. His compositions are very interesting also "
Paquito D'Rivera

Club del Disco

Retamoza risks but wins
he TangoContempo series bring us this bet for a wide , inclusive tango,
where the sax is the central role. Jorge Retamoza wrote many compositions
and all arrangements of this album, he risks but wins.

Four decades ago (although for the popular music history this was yesterday)
Astor Piazzolla and Gerry Mulligan gathered at that glorious summit,
in every way. That reference is inevitable when approaching Vientos de Tango
While the above is a very high point of confluence between bandoneon and baritone sax.

But the spirit of Piazzolla, through his music, says this from the begining
with Café 1930, which is also a powerful wake-up call, with that
sax something rough at first supported only in a string orchestra

Jorge Retamoza strong bet, as other innovative, not afraid to play, and for that he
draws different orchestrations according to the tunes and is own moods.

A host of guest musicians such as Franco Luciani, harmonica in Oblivion
(Ástor again) or Ezequiel Finger, vibraphone in the intricate Repetition,
get on the quintet led by Retamoza and seconded by Rubino on bandoneon,
Kalinoski on piano, Guida on bass and Miguez on drums.

All musicians of solid training, which allow the composer and arranger writing
freely these intersections between tango, jazz and contemporary music for which accurate
performers with good reading and accuracy in touch.

All in all a very interesting quest, full of notable performers and recorded with the most
high quality sound. To demonstrate that urban music is so wide as you want it bigger:
depends largely on the imagination of musicians and listeners, and the drive to go beyond,
no matter what they say the academies.

Vientos de Tango
Some time ago in the opportunity to comment in this space the previous record of Jorge Retamoza,Como Aquellos, I referred to the various strands that came together in his music: the tango tradition, always from their most advanced composers and current jazz, hence the taste for improvisation (perceptible in both him like in his groups) , and contemporary classical music, which is expressed in the rigor of his compositions.
He is a notable sax interpreter, baritone in particular, has been a pioneer in the introduction of this instrument, instrument apparently not related to tango language.
In this recent work, Retamoza-basically surrounded by his current quartet Matias Rubino on bandoneon, Alejandro Kalinoski piano, Lautaro Guida on bass, has given priority through a select group of guests musicians to the wind instruments in various of the tunes.
Developing a program that includes original compositions, two classic tango standards and a couple of tracks of Astor Piazzolla, Retamoza sample over the whole Cd his capacity as performer, writer and arranger.

So you can hear a very attractive and "milongueada" version of Duelo Criollo, with Bernardo Baraj guest in soprano sax, a lyrical tenor sax - guitar duet with Daniel Gomez to interpret Mañana Zarpa un Barco. Oblivion, one of the most melancholy tunes of Astor Piazzolla, has a remarkable intervention with excellent harmonic of Franco Luciani and Café in 1930, another composition of great Astor originally for flute and guitar, Retamoza, demonstrating his continued interest in the chamber music environment, proposes a novel arrangement, in which his baritone sax appears surrounded by a string ensemble.

The most modern and daring side of the CD Buscando el Marroco, Polaroid, Mayo, Repetición, Tango Alocado are interpreted by the original quartet with an occasional guest as the vibraphonist
Ezequiel Finger or Daniel Miguez on drums. Also noteworthy is the title track to the album, with the participation of Gustavo Bergalli on trumpet and, again, a string ensemble. A new album by Jorge Retamoza that if confirmation was needed, put him as one of the most important figures in the landscape of prolific musicians working in the permanent renewal of the genre.
