"Once Upon A Time In Argentina is a double CD package, the 2 discs presenting 2 distinct projects. Disc One, which is actually called Once Upon A Time In Argentina is by a quartet including 2 percussionists. This unconventional line-up reflects what I think is the importance of rhythm in the music. In fact the whole continuous story comprises various chapters linked by different rhythms, none of which were pre-planned but were created in the studio by the combination of 2 percussionists of very different styles.

- Juan Carlos Martello, drum kit Jorge Savelon, percussion, Ruben Ferrero, piano, pianica, percussion and voice, George Haslam baritone sax, tarogato.

Disc Two is again a studio recording, this time by a saxophone quartet - "The Walter Thiers Memorial Saxophone Quartet". The history of jazz in Argentina and the place it holds to day is deeply indebted to the work of Walter Thiers. Walter was that rare sort of guy you meet here and there, an absolute fanatic who devoted his life to his love of the music and expressed this by helping the musicians and making things happen. All 4 members of the Quartet have reason to remember him with love and gratitude.

The Walter Thiers Memorial Saxophone Quartet. - Pablo Ledesma soprano, Sergio Paolucci alto, Daniel Harari tenor and George Haslam baritone"-Slam
