As announced by Chp Boaz in The Latin Jazz Corner:

2011 Latin Jazz Composition Of The Year

“Pueblo [Village]”
Composed by Pedro Giraudo
(album) Córdoba [ZOHO Music]
Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra

In announcing the award, Chip Boaz observes:
“The ability to turn ideas into song and then translate that sound into meaning within a listener’s ears sits at the core of a composer’s task. It’s not an easy job – it’s a process that requires a complete understanding of your core concept, a wide range of musical tools to express your idea, and then the skill to create a product that will allow musicians to adequately execute your creation. Bassist Pedro Giraudo put all these pieces together into a multi-movement piece that drew together imagery from his hometown of Córdoba, colorful jazz harmony, rhythms from Argentina and beyond, as well as his distinctive approach to texture and arrangement. “Pueblo (Village)” clocks in at over 20 minutes and elegantly brings Giraudo’s ideas to the listener in an unforgettable listening experience that overflows with a power and expression that can’t be beat.”

The Latin Jazz Corner Best Of The Year Awards is an annual event fueled by the will of our readers – the winners are selected through a voting process open to LJC readers, Latin Jazz artists, Latin Jazz fans, and the general public. The voting for our fifth annual awards ran from December 8, 2011 – December 23, 2011 and drew over 20,000 participants from around the world.
