Acoutsic guitarist Agustín Luna, a 25 year-old talent from Argentina, provided a conclusion to this year’s vibrant Wachovia Jazz Series this week. I caught the initial performance (the first of six throughout the weekend) on Wednesday evening, June 6, at the Recital Hall in the Simons Center. The soft-spoken guitarist played a varied program consisting of works by Argentinian (several by Astor Piazolla), French, Brazilian, and Peruvian composers, with an American jazz medley thrown in.

[image-1] Luna doesn’t have an official web site yet, but there is some cool footage of him back home playing at what looks like a a casual wine dinner with friends on YouTube.com (check out his version of Piazolla’s “Adios Nonino,” played originally on bandoneón, here).
