Penas Argentinas is Jorge Szajko’s second CD released on SLAM (following ‘Orquestra Salvaje’, SLAMCD 246). His first CD attracted some of the best critiques of any SLAM release "I'm sorry, Jorge, but I cannot afford a genius grant for you. I would if I could, but at least I can let the world know what I think of this astonishing disc" Fred Barrett, Beyond Coltrane. "Szajko clearly has a unique musical vision that stretches beyond words" Francois Couture All Music Guide. Jazz Views voted it in the top ten ‘non British’ CDs of 2002.

The title of this second CD is loosely interpreted as "Argentine Blues" and some of the music (the Milonga and the Zamba) reflect the problems of the country’s problems during the past 3 years – but life goes on with the irrepressible Chacarera and Carnavalito.

Also available through all digital shops.
