Leonardo Suarez Paz receives accolades for his modernistic treatment of Piazzolla's original compositions he arranged for Neave Trio's "Celebrating Piazzolla"
Azica Records/ Album release 11/16
Arranger Leonardo Suárez Paz is a son of violinist Fernando Suárez Paz, who played in the composer's ensemble for a decade. Some of the composer's spirit seems to have seeped into the next generation."
A Schubertian pianism gives way to a dramatic Weill-esque flair.. The instrumental introduction to "Oblivion" is one of Suárez Paz's finer moments... Original and rather operatic piece of modernism composed by Suárez Paz .. opens with a kind of minty cadenza for violin and cello, and goes on to pay tribute to the great Astor Piazzolla.."

The result was a fascinating collaboration called TANGO, TAP, AND FIRE."
They played with enormous passion, performing three pieces by Suárez Paz's mentor, Astor Piazzolla..."
Suárez Paz sang the beautiful ballad, "El Dia Que Me Quieras" and was joined by his wife, Olga Suárez Paz, in a short tango dance demonstration. Paz's singing voice is gorgeous, so his song was a special treat that brought loud cheers from the audience."
I have seen Glover perform many times, but I don't believe I have ever seen more virtuosic dancing than he showed us at 54 Below. Glover is to the hoofer what Picasso is to the painter or what Pavarotti is to the opera singer."
"Leonardo Suarez Paz is surely now the torchbearer of Argentine Tango and the legacy of its greatest composer, Astor Piazzolla."
"In Leonardo's hands, it merges deftly with jazz. Piazzolla's "Calambre" is an excellent example of this—at times, it is as if Stuff Smith (the father) duets with Jean-Luc Ponty (the son)."
"a magnificent performance filled with all the virtues of tango—"Masters of Tango Violin," indeed."
All About Jazz, Escualo Review
“This is an album in which love triumphs over the ravages of time, where phrasing flourishes beyond technique and the dense humidity of the La Plata River and perfume of jacaranda and silk floss trees prevail over the exhaust pipes of city buses. It unites and continues a tradition that constantly advances, gliding towards an unpredictable future."
