Leonardo & Olga Suarez Paz, "Tango Royalty" - All About Jazz
Leonardo Suarez Paz is a visionary artist who redefines tango as an evolving, complex, contemporary genre - a vision that was passed on to him by family friend and mentor, Astor Piazzolla. A composer, choreographer, vocalist and a "virtuoso extraordinaire on the violin" (Wynton Marsalis) Leonardo can be heard on scores of GRAMMY winning recordings including those of Placido Domingo, Luis Miguel, Carlos Franzetti and Ruben Blades. He has appeared as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Spoleto and Umbria Jazz Festivals in Italy and arranged and composed for numerous artists including the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Accompanied by his parter, Olga Suarez Paz, they have performed and brought their productions to the Teatro Colon Opera House, CCK and Teatro Alvear in Buenos Aires, the Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Latin Grammy Awards Ceremony for a live performance.
Symphonic Tango for chamber or symphonic orchestra and violin soloist Leonardo Suarez Paz features the works of A. Piazzolla and L. Suarez Paz and includes special arrangements of Nuevo Tango classics, the violin concerto Nuevos Aires (L.Suarez Paz), premiered in 2017 in New York and the tango dancing of Leonardo & Olga Suarez Paz.

"The art and music of Leonardo Suarez Paz: Because tango is a music for dancing. It is classical music. It is dance and poetry and song. It is about the free, creative expression of the soul. It's about life—or rather what it can be." - All About Jazz, D. Heinning
