Carlos Franzetti - piano

"Solo piano albums allow talented pianists the opportunity to express themselves as freely as they want. Without concern for other band members,
the pianist can follow whatever whim that presents itself.
When a composer/pianist of Carlos Franzetti’s caliber makes a solo piano record, it can be so much more. Mambo Tango provides an opportunity for this Grammy Award winning composer to not only showcase his talent as a keyboard player but also gives an exposed look at his compositional and arranging style on some classic fare, along with three Franzetti originals.
The Argentinean composer has shown his diverse range as composer over the years with pieces that span the genres of jazz, classical, tango and other Latin music. On the introspective Mambo Tango, Franzetti takes on compositions from composers he finds inspirational including Rodgers and Hart, Gary McFarland, Bill Evans and jazz’s most important composer/pianist Duke Ellington. Franzetti’s talents as a musical craftsman and improviser truly shine on this new recording."
