(Scroll down for english info) Diego Maroto, quién se especializó en jazz en la Escuela Superior de Música del Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, se acercó al género por influencia directa de su padre y de grandes músicos como Charlie Parker y John Coltrane. Forma parte de la International Association of Jazz Educators desde 1993 y su formación academica ha sido rigurosa y bajo la tutela de increíbles maestros como Danny Mathusak, Darryl Winsman, Ran Blake, Alfonso Martínez y Larry Russel. Sus estudios cubren las áreas de la armonía, la improvisación, el arreglo y la composición. Ha participado en importantes proyectos y grabaciones con los jazzistas mas destacados de nuestro país como Eugenio Toussaint, Agustin Bernal, Enrique Neri, Francisco Tellez, Iraida Noriega, Big Band Arte 01,La casa de Agua, Waldo Madera, Linea Tres, Omar Aran, Roberto Aymes , entre otros... Ademas de su creciente carrera como representante importante de el jazz en Mexico, se ha presentado con gran exito en los escenarios mas importantes de nuestro pais asi como del extranjero al lado de algunas de las figuras latinas mas sobresalientes de los ultimos años abarcando desde el Rock el Pop hasta la musica Afroantillana. En Noviembre del 2004 Diego y su sexteto se presentaron en Nueva York en Dizzys Club de jazz at the Lincoln Center, todos los dias durante una semana compartiendo escenario con Antonio Sanchez. Un evento sin precedentes en la historia del jazz en nuestro pais. En el 2005 estrena con gran exito una nueva formacion en TRIO conformada por Gabriel Puentes en la Bateria y Jorge Luri Molina en el contrabajo. Dicha agrupacion se ha presentado en diversos festivales y lugares importantes como el Palacio De Bellas Artes donde se celebro el homenaje a jazzistas mexicanos a principios del 2006.

ENGLISH The music of Diego Maroto is not some forced attempt at combining native Mexican elements with the harmonies of Jazz. This is no Mariachi-Jazz or a Bop-Jarocho of some kind. This is pure and simple as Straight Ahead a Jazz music as you will hear anywhere. Diego's sextet is on the level of many of the greats and I'll put them side by side next to the groups led by Roy Hargrove and David Sanchez. He is just as gifted a composer, if not better. I say that without any reservation whatsoever. If his name was John Johnson or Lou Dimaggio, there'd be no question that he'd be a strong presence at Jazz festivals and would be booked at places like Yoshi's, Jazz Alley, Blues Alley, Hothouse, Birdland, Blue Note, Iridium and other high profile venues. But his name is Diego Maroto who hails from and studied in Mexico and I hate to say it, but it's more than likely he and his Jazz compadres will get lumped into some type of World/Jazz or Latin/Jazz category and be treated as an avant- garde act without having heard the music. If you listen to his music, it's no different than what any other mainstream Jazz artist is doing today. Only his music is truly exceptional. One of his compositions entitled MUNDO PARALELO is as hard bop as any Eddie Henderson & Sonny Fortune CD or as funky as any Weather Report or Taj Mahal recording out there. In another composition, ANOTHER MINOR BLUES, bass player Agustmn Bernal takes a solo that puts him in the pantheon of great bassists on the scene today like Boris Koslov, John Benitez, Dwayne Burno and John Pattitucci, amongst others.
