Emilio Solla y La Inestable de Brooklyn at Birdland NYC

March 30 @ 2:17 pm EDT

Ring in the spring season with Grammy Nominee Emilio Solla and his nine piece orchestra, La Inestable de Brooklyn! This peculiar
ensemble, made up of many different smaller units, can project
textures and sounds that evoke a wide range of styles and influences.

Commenting on a performance by Solla recently, The New York Times said “The virile throb of Astor Piazzolla’s nuevo tango was omnipresent in the pianist Emilio Solla’s stately pulse.” But even as the influence of the great creator of modern tango is present in Solla’s compositions, he takes here a broader approach, from academic counterpoint writing to free improvisation, from traditional tango and Latin American sounds to a standard trio plus horns that brings at times the classical color of the greatest and most distinctly American art form: jazz music
