The arrival of Argentinean musician Guillermo Klein in Barcelona in 2003 was well received by the city's jazz community. This good reception was, however, not surprising given the prestige that Guillermo enjoyed in New York as composer, arranger and director of his band Los Guachos. In Barcelona he presently plays the piano with groups such as those of Giulia Valle and Joe Smith and has put together his own band, which features Gorka Benítez, David Xirgu and Carme Canela among others.
In autumn of 2004, Guillermo returned to New York to perform with Los Guachos. Two monthes later, it was invited to perform with Los Guachos at the 36th Barcelona Jazz Festival. For a such special occasion, Juan de Cruz Urquiza and Richard nant flew in from Buenos Aires, Chris Cheek, Bill McHenry, Taylor Haskins, Sandro Tomasi, Jeff Ballard and Ben Monder came from New York and Fernando Huergo from Boston. Los Guachos were joined by two regular Fresh Sound New Talent artists, Gorka Benítez and Carme Canela.
The result was this intense and brilliant concert that took place in the cozy setting of the Luz de Gas venue.
