Rodolfo Alchourrón

Rodolfo Alchourrón (April 25, 1934 — May 16, 1999) was an Argentinian jazz guitarist, composer, arranger, and bandleader with a recording career that spanned nearly four decades. One of his earliest recorded appearances was on the track “Demasiado Tarde” on the 1960 Menorama EP by Agrupacion Nuevo Jazz. In 1966, he played in Trío Eduardo Rovira, which issued the album Tango En La Universidad on Edul. Appearances would follow on albums by a diverse range of artists, including Almendra, Clare Fischer, Dino Saluzzi, and Donna Caroll.

Between 1972 and 1976, Alchourrón released three Latin-jazz/rock albums — alternately known as the “Clarificación” trilogy — on the Promúsica and Qualiton imprints. During the 1980s, he released two albums with his backing ensemble Southern Exposure and also appeared on Astor Piazzolla‘s comeback album The Rough Dancer and the Cyclical Night (Tango Apasionado).
