Diego Urcola is no stranger to the limelight, or the practice room, for that matter. Having begun his musical studies at the age of nine in the Colegio Ward in Buenos Aires, followed up by the prestigious Berklee College of Music, rounded off at City College of New York, Urcola has been through some of the finest training that the Latin jazz idiom has to offer. The lineup reads like a who's-who in Latin jazz, showcasing the founding fathers of the style, and the young lions of tomorrow, including Dave Samuels, Paquito d'Rivera, Jimmy Heath, Avishai Cohen, Berklee chum Antonio Sanchéz, Edward Simon, and Pernell Saturnino.

Il trombettista è però argentino, e la musica proposta nel CD è tutt'altro che vicina alle atmosfere del jazz di casa nostra. Viva è piuttosto un ottimo esempio di jazz mainstream newyorkese. Le virgolette sono d'obbligo, perché accanto agli echi di Wayne Shorter (e di molti altri) che troviamo in Blues For Jimmy, abbiamo Adios Nonino di Astor Piazzolla e, più in generale, influenze latine in tutte le composizioni a firma del leader

Urcola’s exceptional technique served him well. In 1999 the late vibraphonist, Milt Jackson, formed an all‑star big band, asking him to participate. A year later, the ever‑adventurous Urcola became a member of the International Vamp Band, a group founded by iconoclastic bass player Avishai Cohen. During the following two years Urcola’s star rose even higher. In 2001, as part of the D’Rivera quintet, he earned a Latin Grammy; the following year, Urcola, again working with D’Rivera, took part in the film Calle 54 the acclaimed music documentary. On Viva, it has been noted that there exists a sensibility of experimentation that is vibrant throughout. Meanwhile, Urcola has said that one of his goals is to integrate his homeland’s voice into the jazz idiom. I like to bring the tango flavor from my country into the mix, he said, adding, But, foremost I’m a jazz musician. 2006 is marked by important events.
