Diego Urcola


The vibrant new album by Argentinian trumpeter and 3-time Grammy Nominee, Diego Urcola.

Recorded in the splendid Sear Sound Studios of New York, by the hand and ears of the great James Farber, and the complicity of Luis Perdomo on the piano, Hans Glawischnig on double bass and Eric McPherson on drums. A record that merits much more than appreciation.

Artists :

Diego Urcola ( Trumpet, Flugelhorn )
Yosvany Terry ( Alto & Soprano Sax, Percussion, Chekere )
Luis Perdomo ( Piano, Fender Rhodes )
Hans Glawischnig ( Bass )
Eric McPherson ( Drums )
Diego Urcola

This is Diego Urcola's second album on the CAM Jazz label, after “Viva” in 2006, which was nominated for a Grammy in 2007 for Best Latin Jazz Album.  “Appreciation”   adds an important element to the productions by this artist. An album that the trumpeter, and composer of nine of the tracks, dedicates to those leaders that marked his formation and his career. And so an intricate and multi-faceted work is realized, where Urcola displays an impressive jazz vocabulary, rich with texture; his is a language that knows how to draw on the most diverse traditions, reconstructing the thematic material and giving life to a unique and personal speech that goes way beyond the well-known Latin repertoire that has been presented on stages worldwide. Here it is, a dedication to Hubbard, to Shorter and Coltrane, without forgetting to celebrate some of the most important leaders of the instrument, such as Davis, Gillespie and Shaw, and without forgetting one of the musicians that has largely contributed to the success of Urcola: Paquito D’Rivera, a musician who, at this point, has accompanied him for years.
