    Regina Carter w/ Pablo Ziegler Quartet at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium Violinist and SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director Regina Carter joins the quartet of Argentine piano virtuoso Pablo Ziegler for an evening dedicated to the music of Zieglers former employer, tango giant Astor Piazzolla. A towering figure in Argentine music, Ziegler is the most visible and important living proponent of Nuevo Tango, the integration of jazz and classical influences into the classic tango style. Ziegler is a masterful pianist, who performed in the quartet of legendary Nuevo Tango innovator Piazzolla for over a decade, until the maestros retirement in 1989. Ziegler played a crucial role on several of Piazzollas greatest recordings, including La Camorra, The New Tango and the incomparable Tango: Zero Hour, considered by Piazzolla to be his finest work. In 1990, Ziegler formed his Quintet for New Tango, which has carried on and expanded the legacy of his mentor, and he won a Latin Grammy for the 2005 album Bajo Cero, his collaboration with Argentine guitarist Quique Sinesi. For this special evening, Carter will add her sublime violin voice to Zieglers quartet, reprising their sparkling collaboration from 2011 at New Yorks Jazz Standard.About Regina CarterFor Regina Carter, the violin isnt merely an improvisational vehicle.
