New Tango CDs
Dear friends of Caribbean and South American Music!
Today, we would like to present some very interesting CDs to you, which more or less belong to the Tango genre. But please note, that these CDs will not convince tango-purists, who are mainly interested in dancing tango.
Zaida Saiace: Amores de Argentina - Diario de Pianista
The pianist Zaida Saiace is from Argentina. She recorded this CD together with Rudy Flores (guitarre), Roberto Tormo (double-bass) and Javier Estrella (percussion) in Paris in 1996. Compositions by Guastavino, Satie, Nazareth, Piazzolla, Salgán and others are equally performed in a charming way. This is not purely classical music, nor pure tango or folklore, but an interesting South American CD. Unfortunately, you will only find the tracklisting of this CD, but at the moment you cannot listen to the audiofiles. From March, 25th on, we will offer the complete service again.
Paier Preinfalk Project: More Than Tango
Klaus Paier (accordion) and Gerald Preinfalk (saxophone, clarinet) did not intend to produce a CD imitating the Tango Nuevo of Astor Piazzolla, but they wanted to imply the whole spectrum of their instruments in order to create something completely different. This CD is a lot more “jazzy” than “Movimiento” (PAO 010910) by Klaus Paier Trio.
La Chicana: Ayer Hoy Era Mañana
This CD was released already in 1998, but it has not received a lot of attention yet, which from our point-of-view is a pity. It has not been available for some time, but we managed to get hold of some copies. The CD “Yesterday today was tomorrow” shows 15 diverse titles: tangos from the 1920s and 1970s, Candombe, Chamamé, compositions by Angel Villodo, Discépolo, Acho Estol, Delfino and the beautiful song “Por una cabeza”written by Gardel. All the lyrics are in the booklet, besides, there is a small explanation for every title in English. This CD will only be available for a limited time, so you should at least listen to some of the songs!
It’s springtime! Enjoy!
