Guitarist - Composer - Arranger
As a composer I work in different ways, by my own inspiration, on commissions and for particular projects.
I'm also an arranger, having worked for artists such as the Koji Hirata-Ariel Lopez Saldivar Duo and Sofía Tosello.
Now, let's go to the music
Trio (guitar, piano, bass)
‘La Llegada,’ (Epsa Music, 2017) is Adam Tully’s first album as a bandleader. It features eight original compositions which draw on both traditional tango music and the search for a personal voice. The album explores the sonority of tango guitar through Tully’s unconventional trio (with Emilio Teubal, piano and Pedro Giraudo, bass) and pieces for guitar and guitar duo. There are two contributions from contemporary composers: Fernando Otero and Emilio Teubal. Recorded in New York and Buenos Aires, ‘La Llegada’ is one of the latest contributions to tango’s current compositional boom.
I love working with two guitars. In some cases I play tangos with another guitarist and in others I compose and arrange for my duo with baritone guitar, played by the great Felipe Traine.
I'm recording an album of beautiful collaborations with bandoneonists. Each artist will accompany me in one of my compositions and one classic tango. I've already recorded with Santiago Segret and here is a little preview.
This is a harmonica, guitar, baritone guitar (which I play) and double bass quartet. We play
traditional tango geared towards the dance floor, with an intimate sound and great arrangements.
This is a tango guitar supergroup with Emiliano Faryna, Pablo Kovacevich and Alejo de los Reyes. We come together occasionally for a concert or session work with arrangements of each one of us. We also change the role each one plays in every song.
With this amazing bandoneonist, whom I'm lucky enough to call a friend, I play every time he needs me.
Alejo de los Reyes Quartet
Alejo is a great tango guitarist and I am a sub in his quartet from time to time.
Emilio Teubal Trio
While in NYC, I was part of this beautiful trio. Now, when Emilio visits BA, I play his amazing music with him.
‘Tango For Import’ (Panoramic Recordings, 2015) is an album of classic tango arrangements by the New York trio Importango. ‘Tango for Import’ is a play on the old phrase ‘tango for export,’ coined by record labels in an effort to pander to international audiences. Importango’s philosophy is that all audiences deserve the real thing, not a watered-down version. This album to 'imports' the language of tango from Buenos Aires to New York City and beyond.
