TV- and radio recordings as well as ten LP/CD/DVDs document the musical results of this
Compositions Karlheinz Miklin had written for the 20th birthday were released on CD/DVD as
"ANIVERSARIO/Sketches from Illyro-Argentina“. The ORF CD "Onda Alpin“ was presented
on a tour 2010 which included several concerts with the KUG Jazz Orchestra.
Gustavo Bergalli established his reputation as the most important trumpet player of
Argentina and continues to commute between Europe (as Soloist at the "Stockholm Jazz
Orchestra" and the NRD Big Band), New York and Buenos Aires.
Marcelo Mayor, known as a sensitive accompanist, is as sought after as ever among
leading Argentinean soloists. However, lately the guitarist has increasingly dedicated himself
to composing (CD "ONCE Y VEINTE“ BAU Records)
Alejandro Herrera has attracted major international attention as sideman of Al DiMeola or
Philip Catherine, although he has come to the fore also as leader with the release of his new
CD "Behind the bass".
Quintino Cinalli, who followes great Pocho Lapouble on the drum chair, is another
prominent member of the Argentine jazz scene. Current member of the group of Dino
Saluzzi, he also has played with Esperanza Spalding, Airto Moreira or Mercedes Sosa.
Mario Gusso is still sought after as a sideman in all settings of afro-american and
indigenous music, but released CDs also as a composer and bandleader
(CD "COMO DIBUJO DE AGUA“)
Awarded with the "Karl-Boehm-Interpraetationspreis“ as the first jazz musician Karlheinz
Miklin has gained increasing reputation. His first Solo CD, frequent trio tours with Billy
Hart/Heiri Kaenzig and lately also with renowed Brasilian musicians document his status in
the international jazz scene.

or "that jazz." "AllaboutJazz“
