As Bandleader

Vigor TangueroVigor Tanguero – Latin GRAMMY winner

After releasing five remarkable albums performed by various formats of jazz ensembles, his gaze was captured by the glint of tango. Giraudo hails from the birthplace of tango, Argentina, and so this album is a homecoming of sorts. A man revisiting the music of his country and culture, contributing not something homespun but tantalizing and suggestive.

On November 29, 2016, the WDR Big Band performed a program of six of Pedro’s compositions to a packed house at the WDR Funkhaus in Köln. Here he was, an Argentinean who had come to New York 20 years prior, conducting one of the great big bands in the world – in Germany!


Cuentos, showcases the talents of many of New York’s most in-demand instrumentalists and allows the leader’s composing and arranging prowess to take center stage. The results are as uniformly innovative as they are commanding. (2015)

Pedro Giraudo further solidifies his reputation as one of NYC’s most creative and daring bandleaders. The session finds his 12-piece jazz orchestra in dazzling form, roaring with laser-focused precision through a set of original works that defy conventional big band thinking. (2009)


Desconsuelo is a special piece of work. It’s broad, dramatic and majestic. Giraudo’s arrangements draw from early Ellington, and Gil Evans, and modern big band orchestration and work over traditional rhythms from Argentina. This is modern jazz and Latin music at its best. (2006)
