Argentinean bandoneon player-composer JP Jofre has been repeatedly highlighted by the New York Times and praised as one of today’s leading artists by Great Performers at Lincoln Center. A recipient of the National Prize of the Arts grant in Argentina, Mr. Jofre has taken his form of contemporary tango to some of the most important venues in Asia, Europe, America and the Caribbean as soloist and composer. He has collaborated with many famous musicians in a wide range of musical styles, including Paquito D’Rivera, Gloria Estefan, Symphony Silicon Valley, Sacramento Philharmonic, Philippe Quint, Fernando Otero, Westchester Jazz Orchestra, Fred Sturm, Esperanza Spalding Borislav Strulev, and Nina Beilina. He has presented his music and given workshops at Juilliard School of Music, Dartmouth College and Miami Univ. Mr. Jofre has received commissions and been part of many prestigious festivals including the Umbria Jazz Festival, Great Performers at Lincoln Center, Seattle Town Hall’s Global Rhythms, Belgorod Music Festival, Sudtirol Jazz Festival, Celebrity Series of Boston, American Virtuosi, and Bachanalia Taiwan. Jofre’s first CD features 11-time Grammy-winner Paquito D’ Rivera, who recorded “Primavera,” an original composition by Mr. Jofre. For the world premiere of his Bandoneon Concerto, the Mercury News wrote: “…he is an electrifying composer-bandoneon player.” In 2012, Jofre was invited by the Free University of Bolzano (Italy) to perform for the homage to Argentinean Nobel Peace Prize winner, Adolfo Perez Esquivel. JP Jofre proudly uses the new “AA” bandoneon by BandionFabrik Klingenthal.
