His style incorporates highly orchestrated ensemble work with complex chord structures, fast harmonic movement and unexpected cadences with jagged, highly articulated horn lines. The sound of the Baritone sax is a prominent anchor in the 5-horn line up. The ensemble exhibits a high level of technical skill and Tancredi shows great artfulness in combining asymmetrical and esoteric orchestrations with restructured Montunos in the more typically Latin sections but there are no grooves of familiar Latin clichés found. He experiments with meter, time, and harmonic vocabulary. The only nod to the mainstream is heard in the funky "Sofra" which features a re-harmonization of Sweet Georgia Brown. "Mazomorrera" is based on a traditional song sung by the women corn vendors in Montevideo. The final cut, the mythic "Mirame a los Ojos", is a ballad with a haunting melody. The Alto and Tenor conversation at the climax of the piece is the emotional high point of the work. Tancredi displays great modesty, showcasing the ensemble over pianistic self- indulgences. Overall the work shows great intelligence and aesthetic sensibility. The title "Ongoing Dream"s refers to his self-examination and exploration of his own inner world. He has used his skill and talent to bring his dreams into form; it’s what artists do. He does it well.
