His music goes from traditional tango to Astor Piazzola's music without never abandoning the territory of jazz.

Press quotes:

“A fascinating variety of textures in the wind with deep bass lines of the tenor saxophones",
By Ian Mann de “The Jazz Mann” Gales, UK.

“The band made a version of Tanguera that was a nice mix of tango and jazz"
By Lance Liddl de “Bebop spoken here” Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

“Another group that provided at the Buenos Aires International Jazz Festival 2017 a different slant on the tradition was the 13-member Sotavento Big Band. In addition to a standard rhythm section, the group featured only woodwinds—five tenor saxophones, two clarinets and one alto. This unique combination of sonorities was employed to perform jazz-oriented version of traditional and modern tango.”
