English Version:
Esteban Sehinkman (Buenos Aires, 1973) began studying piano at the age of 15. His first teacher was classical pianist Susana Spadini. After five years of classical studies, Esteban entered the Escuela de Musica Popular de Avellaneda (Buenos Aires) where he studied jazz. He finished his degree in 1997 and the following year moved to Boston in order to study at the renowned Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, his focus was jazz piano and contemporary composition. It was during his time in Boston that Estaban began to excel as a pianist, playing in many local venues, and as a composer, creating new music. In addition to his studies at Berklee, he also took private lessons with Joanne Brackeen, George Garzone, Hall Crook and John Bavicchi. In pursuit of more musical opportunities, Esteban moved to Chicago in September of 2001. During his time in Chicago he had the opportunity to play music with a wide variety of musicians including vocalist Steve Evans, Josh Abrams, Jeff Morrison, Mark Sonksen, Chris Winters, Brian Schwab, Jeff Hanley, Nori Tanaka, Jeff Parker and Taku Akiyama, among others. By the following year, 2002, he completed the recording of his first CD “Froth of the days” (“La Espuma de los dias”), featuring some of the most interesting and talented young musicians in the Chicago area. With his quintet, Esteban had a regular gig for almost one year, playing every Monday night at “Smoke Daddy”, a classic Chicago jazz club. After living and playing music for five years in the USA, Esteban returned to his native Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2003. Since his return, he as continued to pursue his goals of playing and composing creative music. Esteban has performed his music and participated in musical projects all over Argentina including venues such as Teatro Colon, Teatro Gral San Martin, Teatro Municipal de Bahia Blanca, jazz festivals in Buenos Aires and Rosario, Cordoba, Salta, Jujuy and Montevideo (Uruguay). He has performed and recorded with several Argentine musicians including Guillermo Klein's Band (with Richard Nant, Gustavo Musso, Juan Cruz de Urquiza, Daniel “Pipi” Piazzolla, Martin Pantyrer, Matias Méndez, Liliana Herrero), Inmigrantes Big Band, La Bomba de Tiempo, Guillermo Delgado, Hernán Merlo, Oscar Giunta, Eloy Michelini, Juan Suárez, Sergio Verdinelli, Jerónimo Carmona, Sergio Alvarez, Mariana Bianchini, and Lulo Isod, among others. His second CD “Búfalo” (Limbo Music) was recorded in 2006. For this CD Esteban composed and arranged music for a sextet that featured Mariano Sivori, Pablo Ben Dov, Carlos Michelini, Ramiro Flores, Mario Cerra and Guillermo Calliero. In recognition of his artistic development and achievement, the prestigious Club del Disco (Buenos Aires) selected “Bufalo” as “disc of the month, March, 2007". By 2009 Esteban was ready to record again, this time with an electric trio. His third CD “El sapo argentino de boca ancha” (“The wide-mouthed Argentine toad”) featured Daniel “Pipi” Piazzolla on drums and Matias Mendez on electric bass, in addition to Esteban playing Fender Rhodes and piano. Once again his talents were recognized by Club del Disco (Buenos Aires) and “El sapo argentino de boca ancha” was selected as “disc of the month, March 2009". In 2010, Esteban is selected by specialized magazine "El Intruso" as "New Artist 2009". Along with his busy schedule, Esteban also dedicates much time to activities related to music education and music production. As a proponent of Argentine jazz and its unique flavor, he has spearheaded a wonderful project called “Real Book Argentina”, resulting in the publication of a book compiling more than 250 compositions written by Argentine composers, both here and abroad. Although he is an active performing musician, Esteban continues to teach both in his private studio and also in schools and institutions.
