Album Notes
Mr. Vivo, led by bassist and composer Pedro Giraudo, has captivated listeners around the world with its unique blend of South American grooves, Argentine folk songs, the passion of tango and jazz improvisation. Mr. Giraudo, in the tradition of such composers as Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, highlights the unique talents of each band member, masterfully weaving together pre-composed and improvised elements.

He has performed professionally with Pablo Ziegler, Kenny Garret, Marco Granados, William Cepeda, Chris Washburn, and Eternal Tango; and recorded with Fernando Oteros X-Tango, Marta Topferova, Jose Conde, Lucia Pulido, Mo'Guajiro & Jess Jurkovic. Pedro Giraudo has participated in various Jazz and Music Festivals throughout the United States, Europe, South America, the Caribbean and Asia and performed in venues such as The Blue Note (Japan), Birdland (Vienna), Queen Elizabeth Hall (London), Kennedy Center (Washington DC), Iridium, Jazz Standard, Lincoln Center and Carneghi Hall (NYC).

This is a great CD
This CD really sounds spectacular. Not only are the tunes & the band great, but the recording quality really shines. Pedro Giraudo is following in the footstpes of his compatriot Guillermo Klein, less like Gil Evans and more like a Gaucho Charles Mingus. Interesting from start to finish. Highly recommended to lovers of new jazz.

David Moorman

Mr. Vivo's self-titled CD is a monster!
In terms of quality and originality, Mr. Vivo's self-titled CD is a monster! It belongs on the short list of the very best composed jazz in which the world music idea meets the big band idea, along with albums like Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra and Chico O'Farrill's Pure Emotion. Viva, Mr. Vivo!

Scott Reeves (Professor of Music, City College of New York & Jui

a unique mix of jazz, tango and odd rhythms - masterfully played
Pedro Giraudo and Mr. Vivo have a uniquely original conception - an eclectic mix of cutting edge jazz, Argentinian tango and odd rhythmic meters. The music sounds so lyrical and is so masterfully played that
it's easy to loose sight of how difficult and innovative
it is.

Graciela Carriquí

The best new jazz band I've heard in years
Although Giraudo's music is informed by his Argentine roots, it doesn't fall under the rubric of "latin jazz" (so often more like a watered-down version of both genres, for those who don't have the stomach for either in it's pure form). Giraudo's compositions continue on in the tradition begun by the best harmonic innovators of the 50's, 60's and 70's (before free jazz's improvisational approach unraveled any recognizable structure that could be construed as composing). If Teddy Charles could swing hard, if Gary McFarland had ignored Cal Tjader, if George Russell could dance, if Charlie Mingus' thoughts were organized...if they were alive today, they'd be writing music like this. The cd does an amazing job of capturing the excitement of a live performance without the usual sacrifice of sound quality and production inherent therein. The band is so tight it's seamless. All the musicians are top drawer, but the ensemble is the star here. That said, worth singling out are the precocious Ryan Keberle on trombone and Jonathan Powell on trumpet--their older, more experienced counterparts must be quaking in their boots. And the drummer, Jeff Davis, is a force of nature! The cd manages to be intellectually engaging, emotionally stirring, and foot-stompingly swinging at the same time. I can't recommend this cd highly enough. I sent a copy to my Dad as a gift!
