Press Quotes:

‘MI BUENOS AIRES HERIDO"... a record with a different artistic tango musicality... but better'...
(by Rubén Ferrero - elmurocultural.com)

‘...It´s not strange that Argentinian jazz musicians want to get closed to the tango; both musical genres have a history in common in Buenos Aires. The one who has got closer was musician Pedro Menéndez and his ‘Ensamble’ through the CD ‘Mi Buenos Aires herido’, but without betraying the tango essence. Their cadenced and nostalgic rhytms only are possible in current Buenos Aires century and Menéndez knew how to make use of them...’
(by Hugo Martínez - Diario Popular Argentina)

‘...All along his career, Pedro Menéndez has been composing music, not only for his own discographic productions, but for cinema, television and theatre pieces too in countries like Argentina and Germany. Well-known artists like Osvaldo Fattoruso, Rodolfo Mederos, Rubén Rada and Bernardo Baraj have also colaborated with him in different moments of his trayectory. For this occasion, Pedro Menéndez took out his ‘jazz suit’, put on the ‘tango one’ and released this interesting discographic material that carries his personal quality guarantee.’

' "Mi Buenos Aires herido"... A Contemporary Tango CD that deserves to be listened...'
