Esteban Sehinkman 4
Boris Club (Gorriti 5568, 4777-0012, www.borisclub.com). 9.30pm. Tickets: from $60 at the venue and www.ticketek.com.ar
Hailing from BA’s new wave of jazz, Sehinkman 4 has been active since 2008, merging textures and rhythms that could be traced back to Mahavishnu Orchestra or Medeski, Martin & Woods, though always with a special personal touch. Esteban Sehinkman fronts this quartet with his always-present and versatile Nord synthesizer, a perfect companion for Sorín’s own synthesizers — both of them creating powerful, entrancing passages that find sheer balance with Piazzolla’s clock-like drum fills and Mendez’s poweful double bass structures. For those seeking the alignment of 70s psychedelic sounds with today’s musical expressions, Sehinkman 4 will surely fulfill their needs, if not surpass them.
