An Argentinian in New York is ultimately about a man, a maestro’s search for meaning in his adopted home. Hailing from Cordoba, Argentina, Pedro Giraudo is a celebrated and virtuoso bassist, bandleader, composer, and arranger who is a veritable creative genius. Six of Giraudo’s brilliant compositions are brought to life with the spectacular performance of the WDR Big Band. Like a well-oiled machine, these musicians hit each note with precision, and the respective brass and reed sections fall into place like pennies finding their slots. Here you have a bandleader operating at the top of his game, paired with arguably the best big band today.
