Los Guachos: Music of Guillermo Klein
Boston, Massachusetts
Thursday, 20 October 2016 - 7:30 PM
Conductor: Guillermo Klein
For this concert the NEC Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Klein, will draw on music from Klein’s large and small ensembles including Klein’s Tango Suite, Quiero, Con Brasil/Fugue X, Suite Indiana, El Rio, El Camino and Snake. The group will also perform Klein’s arrangements of Ben Monder’s Echolalia, Duke Ellington’s Heaven.

Guillermo Klein moved to the United States when he was 20 to study at Berklee College of Music. Big Van, the big band he assembled for his senior recital, was so successful that he continued performing with the large ensemble, landing a weekly residency for the influential 17-piece ensemble at New York City’s Smalls Jazz Club. The music combined elements of jazz with musical traditions from his native Argentina. Klein later scaled the band down to a more streamlined 11-piece unit that began to be known as Los Guachos, which performed at Smalls, the Jazz Standard, and other venues. Klein returned to his native Argentina in 2000, then relocated to Barcelona in 2002. When he brought Los Guachos back to NYC to play at the Village Vanguard, the band recorded a critically acclaimed live CD. In 2014 Klein moved back to New York City. His recent works are for mixed ensembles of classical and jazz musicians. Klein’s career includes collaborations with artists such as Rebecca Martin, Paquito D’Rivera, Joshua Redman, and Seamus Blake. Los Guachos still performs and records, and their latest CD is Guachos V.
