The trio’s heartfelt melodic embrace on “April 7th” is a poignant example of their shared instincts and sensibilities. It will also be the most beautiful thing you hear all month ”

In fact it is very possible that Emilio Teubal may have emerged as one of the most outstanding musicians from Argentina, with this record that will surely mark him as one of the deepest thinkers as well as one of the most painterly pianists in modern music”

Raul Da Gama. LatinJazz Network.April 2013. 5 Stars Album of the week

Memorias de Otro Tiempo (memories from another time) is truly lovely music Well-played, intelligently composed and arranged music that plays to the strengths of the trio. On this, his fourth album as a leader, Emilio Teubal not only displays his great talent but also a emotional depth that makes this music personal and universal”

by Richard Kamins, Step Tempest, March 2018

When someone asks you what will be considered the classic albums of this modern jazz age in fifty years time, you should point to this recording (Musica para un Dragon Dormido) as one of them. As near to perfection as you can get”

David Sumer- Bird is the Worn- #2 Best of 2013

This music is a revelation. I have rarely heard a requiem played like this. The music seems to come from a distant place and time, but it draws us in with the most heart-warming immediacy”

Memorias de Otro Tiempo

NY based Argentine pianist and composer Emilio Teubal has recently released his fourth album as a band leader Memorias de Otro Tiempo (memories from another time). After three critically acclaimed records featuring large ensembles with a strong emphasis on improvisation, Emilio’s latest project is a small chamber group consisting on piano, guitar and clarinet. The music, written especially for this ensemble,  draws from a wide variety of musical styles that are part of his cultural background: Latin-American folk music, tango music, jazz, free improvisation, classical music and some hints of Middle Eastern music.

"The core of this new record is a four movement suite called "Memorias de Otro tiempo" that later turned into the title of the album. This suite was composed between mid-2015 and 2016, and is the result of the emotional turmoil that meant loosing my mother while being far away from my home country, and "far away" temporarily from the moment I left Argentina almost 20 years ago"
