Gonzalo Bergara Quartet
Buenos Aires guitarist Gonzalo Bergara swings into Arcata with his quartet and a new release, “Walking Home”, for a performance at the Arcata Playhouse. After touring extensively with the John Jorgenson Quintet, Gonzalo Bergara has emerged a virtuoso composer and lead guitarist, mixing a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina, to forge his own style of progressive Gypsy Jazz. His all-acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of the 1930s Django Reinhardt-inspired sound. As His first CD, Porteña Soledad, was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine, and Vintage Guitar Magazine called it a "masterpiece." The Gonzalo Bergara Quartet consists of Gonzalo Bergara on lead guitar, Jeffrey Radaich on rhythm guitar, Leah Zeger on violin, and Brian Netzley on upright bass. The music is heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, as well as the traditional jazz and music of Bergara's true home, Buenos Aires.
