There’s something about Latin Jazz that makes it sound hauntingly beautiful when it is played at a slow tempo.
Hear it for yourself on this tune by trumpeter Diego Urcola which he named after his hometown of
. Buenos Aires, Argentina
Diego performs it on the following video as a member of the Paquito d’Rivera Quintet with Paquito featured on clarinet [he takes a marvelous solo on an instrument seldom heard in Jazz these days], Dario Eskenazi [also an Argentinean] on piano, Oscar Stagnaro on bass, Mark Walker on drums and Pernell Saturino on percussion.
The track is from the quintet’s Live at the Blue Note CD [Half Note 15095-4911].
