Founded in Buenos Aires in 2017, the Pablo Murgier Quartet is an award-winning jazz ensemble based in Paris. Led by pianist and composer Pablo Murgier, the group comprises some of Europe's finest jazz and world music performers, such as Minino Garay (Dee Dee Bridgewater, Richard Bona) and Romain Lecuyer (Ute Lemper).

In 2018, the ensemble was nominated for the «Best New Artist» Argentine Grammy Awards. Murgier's latest album, «Gare du Sud» from 2022, received much-deserved attention in the international press, leading to sold-out concerts in theaters and jazz clubs around Europe and Argentina. In September 2024, the quartet heads on a European tour, presenting its latest album, «Gare du Sud», featuring acclaimed Norwegian violinist Karl Espegard.

An evocative album of nine songs, Gare du Sud delves into a universe of sophisticated timbres derived from a blend of jazz, world music, and Latin rhythms. Incorporating the haunting sound of the bandoneon, the music surprises with its distinctive colors, disruptive rhythmic patterns, and rich, beautiful melodies. Drawing equal inspiration from Keith Jarrett and the Argentine contemporary Diego Schissi, the Pablo Murgier Ensemble dazzles audiences with its eclectic musical language and fresh approach to jazz.

Pablo Murgier is a versatile Argentine pianist, composer, and improviser known for his unique blend of jazz, tango, and world music. He leads the acclaimed Pablo Murgier Ensemble in Paris and has performed at renowned venues worldwide, such as Philharmonie de Paris, CCK of Buenos Aires, and Konzerthaus München. His rich discography highlights original compositions, and his artistic collaborations include projects with ARTE, France 2, and Netflix.
