On the 100th anniversary of Astor Piazzolla’s birth, Piotr Zubek and Janek Pentz rediscovered the forgotten songs of this Argentinian composer, bandoneon virtuoso, pioneer of tango nuevo. Innovative, contemporary arrangement combines a jazzy approach to vocal improvisation with the unique sound of fingerstyle guitar. They played a sold-out Sunday afternoon show at Wakefield’s Red Shed in 2022, and undoubtedly deserve a much wider audience, as they return to the UK for an extended tour. Two engaging and  deeply skilful young musicians!

Piotr Zubek – vocals

Janek Pentz – guitar


A quintet of final-year students from RNCM Manchester, led by trumpeter Will Bird, recently seen here guesting with the Wakefield Big Band, playing a range of classic and contemporary jazz styles.
