Artist Biographies:

"Leonardo Genovese was born in Venado Tuerto, Argentina in 1979. After some years of studying classical piano at the National University of Rosario as well as private lessons in contemporary music, he moved to Boston in 2001. He started his career at Berklee College of Music where he studied with Danilo Perez, Joanne Brackeen and Frank Carlberg, among others. Leo graduated as a Professional Music Major in 2003 and has been constantly performing and recording with talented musicians such us Hal Crook, Darren Barrett, George Garzone, Francisco Mela, Joe Lovano, Bob Gulloti, Phil Grenadier, Dave Santoro, Chris Cheek, Michael Janisch and Ben Monder. In 2004, he released his first solo album entitled Haikus II signed by Spanish label Fresh Sound Records. He also performs regularly with the Esperanza Spalding Group, the Mike Tucker Quartet, Planet Safety (w/Bob Gullotti and Dave Zinno), Wayne Shorter Group and Jack Dejohnette.

When he's not touring with Spalding, Genovese - who is currently based in New York - also plays with a loosely assembled group called the Chromatic Gauchos, whose core membership includes Bob Gulloti, Dan Blake and John Lockwood. This threesome, along with Spalding and percussionist Sergio Miranda, appears prominently on Seeds. While Genovese is still early on his career arc, he hopes that his music could eventually be more than just a source of entertainment, but also a force for change in a world that is troubled by economic, social and political challenges. "I would like it to go somewhere positive, somewhere helpful," he says. "I would like for people to really gain something worthwhile from it. There are so many people around the word in need. Most of us never realize it, because most of us have the basic necessities and much more. But some people - many people - have very little."

He adds: "I want to make people more aware of the many different circumstances - and sometimes difficult circumstances - that other people face every day. A lot of it has to do with having the right intention. Music is a lot like people in that way. If it comes from a good place, it's more likely to bear good fruit." "

"With five albums in different formats under his belt, numerous awards and nominations from the most varied local media and an uninterrupted activity as a composer, arranger and performer, Mariano Otero is one of the key figures of the new jazz in Argentina. He was born in the neighbourhood of Avellaneda in 1976. The son of a musician, he took lessons in piano and guitar and later on in electric bass, double bass and violoncello with some of the most prestigious teachers in Buenos Aires. He studied at the Escuela de Música Popular de Avellaneda, and afterwards graduated from the Escuela de Música Contemporánea. He won a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston and another one to the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. In New York he took lessons with Scott Colley, Mark Hellias and Drew Gress.

Mariano has appeared throughout the country with his different ensembles: a quintet, a septet, his Big Band and, at present, a sextet with which he's preparing his latest album. With his quintet he toured New York and Miami and appeared at the Jazz Festival in Punta del Este. He had the honour of being guest artist at Dave Holland's shows in Buenos Aires.In 2007, the Jazz Festival of the city of Rosario chose him as composer in residence to work with the students of the local school. In 2008, the Buenos Aires Jazz Festival commissioned him with the composition and orchestration of a repertoire paying tribute to guitarist Walter Malosetti, Mariano's mentor and teacher, a task for which he set up a nonet. Such work was recorded in an album to be presented in this year's edition of the Festival. Shortly ago, he was summoned by Sony BMG to produce and arrange singer Iván Noble's new album. In addition, he recorded the soundtrack for the upcoming film Sangre del Pacífico."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"In Ritmos de Agua, longtime friends and jazz musicians Leo Genovese, Mariano Otero and Sergio Verdinelli explore the power and potentiality of water. Contextualizing their aesthetic inspirations within the historical and the metaphorical, the 12 tracks allude to the very tangible rise of civilizations, rich natural ecologies and the singular fluidity of water that moves through their art.

Appealing to genres like Chamame, Chamarrita, Tango and Candombe, the musicians draw from the experience of water, its fluidity and its steady tidal rhythms. While water never dances the same way twice, its amorphous predictability can be felt in the repetitive sensation of waves, or the meditative course of a stream-a feeling the musicians mirror in their varied compositions and gentle deliveries on piano, drums and bass.

Speaking to their project, they collectively affirm, "Water is a musical entity, and we'd like to be like water." This project marks Leo Genovese's and Trio Sin Tiempo's debut on 577 Records."-577 Records
