Connect with Pablo Sáez: Facebook
Pablo Sáez Cerpa is a drummer, composer, arranger and teacher living in Cologne, Germany. Surensemble is the second solo album by Cerpa. The record was mixed by ten-time Grammy® Award Winner Michael Bishop and mastered by the late Walter Quintus. Featuring: João Luis Nogueira: acoustic guitar; Alvaro Severino: electric guitar, Pablo Paredes: piano, André de Cayres: double bass, Pablo Sáez: drums, xylophone, arrangement, composition; *For “Arrullo” feat.: Marta Espirito Santo Hoppe – Cello. Cerpa explains “The songs on this record are part of a series of compositions that I didn’t want to just leave in the pages of our songbook. My band-mates, João, André, Alvaro, Pablo and I have been playing together for years in different groups, working on the development of what we call “South American Jazz.” It’s an extremely underground trend in Europe at the moment, but more musicians are appearing each year.” That’s the short of it!
Otoño de a tres
Gran final feliz
Arrullo (para Maximiliano)

The approach on Surensemble is based less so in North American jazz, but instead a focus on baroque and contemporary classical music within a jazz arc.
