The quote "The next wave in Latin American jazz may well begin with Tosello" from Christopher Loudon of Jazz Times best describes Sofia Tosello, a remarkable young vocalist, originally from Cordoba, Argentina. She belongs to an exciting new group of artists who are changing the Latin American song. Rooted in the variety of Latin American cancin traditions, including tango, chacarera, bolero filin, son and zamba, one also hears shades of the downtown world jazz scene, bossa nova, and a bit of funk in Tosellos performances. Christopher Loundon also writes in Jazz Times that, "the purity of Tosello's voice is matched by the vibrancy of her emotional palette and inventiveness of her cross-cultural technique. Ms. Tosello has performed, recorded and collaborated with a wide variety of talented artists and she has appeared at many noted venues including Summer Stage Central Park (NYC), Blue Note (NYC), Joes Pub (NYC), The Hecksher Theatre at EL Museo del Barrio (NYC), Jazz Standard (NYC), Jazz Gallery (NYC), Smoke (NYC), Drom (NYC), 55 Bar (NYC), Zinc Bar (NYC), Sweet Rhythm (NYC), The Knitting Factory (NYC), The Bitter End (NYC), SOBs (NYC) and others. She is accompanied for this evenings performance by the acclaimed Octavio Brunetti on piano, Pedro Giraudo on bass, drummer Franco Pinna and special guest Aquiles Baez on guitar. Come to enjoy a special music treat!
