PUJOL, Sergio. Third World in jazz key. Notes for a musical biography of Leandro “Gato” Barbieri. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2020, vol.74, n.233, pp.13-27. ISSN 0716-2790.

Contemporary jazz musicians willing to look further away from the tradition of jazz, will find a whole new signifier in the groundbreaking musical conversation between Jazz music and Latin American native genres (mainly from Argentina), started by composer and saxophonist Leandro “Gato” Barbieri (1932-2016). He was a long-time widely acclaimed musician in the European free-jazz style scene by the time he took a decisive cultural turn. His political choice coincided with the onset of civil right movements and a new revolutionary spirit that was rising in Latin America during 1969-1975.The working title of this account about the world's most successful Argentine-born jazz musician is “The Third World Music Turn”.

Keywords : Barbieri; jazz; revolution; Latin America; music; 60's/70's.
