Tango Jazz Quartet plays a uniquely beautiful blend of music that incorporates the melodies and rhythms of tango with the improvisation of jazz. The ensemble takes inspiration from the 1940s and 50s when tango and jazz bands shared stages in their native Buenos Aires. Local audiences will be able to enjoy their exquisitely sensitive blend of the smooth, sometimes cheeky melodies and rhythms of tango, with the harmony and improvisation of jazz. Tango Jazz Quartet regularly plays prestigious festivals in Latin America, Europe, and South Africa and has released three albums including their most recent, On Tour 2013, all have been met with critical acclaim.
