Federico Lechner Tango & Jazz Trio with special guest, Marc Mommaas

Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1974, Federico began to play piano at the age of three with his mother, the music pedagogue Lolita Lechner. During his childhood he worked singing for TV spots and played some classical piano recitals.  

At the age of ten he moves with his family to Spain where he began to study modern music: piano with Horacio Icasto, Harmony with Rafael Reina, Ear Training with Hebe Onesti, Trumpet with Julio Daud, and Rhythm with Miguel Gil. 

Federico has played with most of the top jazz musicians of Spain, such as Antonio Serrano, Perico Sambeat, Jorge Pardo, Ximo Tebar, Carles Benavent, Israel Sandoval, Pedro Ruy Blas, and many others, as well as with great american jazz artists, as Jerry Gonzalez, Christian Howes, Rez Abbasi, Ugonna Okewo, Bob Sands, and others, touring in Europe, the U.S. and South America. 

Federico has recorded over 40 albums of many different styles, including 5 as a Jazz Artist. One of them, "A Primera Vista", duo with Jerry Gonzalez, was nominated Finalist as Best Jazz Album 2002 on the Spanish Music Awards.
