1. Estufa Caliente - Trenzas
2. Efim Jourist - Russisches Roulette
Dear friends of Tango Argentino!
1. „Trenzas“: This is the new CD by the tango orchestra ESTUFA CALIENTE from
Basel/ Switzerland. The tango ensemble produced their second CD celebrating their
11th birthday. The title of the album and the opening song is “Trenzas”, meaning
plaids. The orchestra plays new arrangements of tangoes from the 1940s and 1950s,
thus they gain a new and charming design, just like a nicely made plaid.
The line-up of ESTUFA CALIENTE in TRENZAS is the one of an orquesta típica
with the traditional orchestration of (at least) two bandoneons, string instruments,
double-bass and piano. There is also the Argentinian singer and bandoneon player
Susana Ratcliff who represents the authentic atmosphere of her home country with
her clear and impressive voice.
2. Efim Jourist is a well known Russian tango musician. He has not only performed
frequently within Germany, but he has also received positive critique for his CDs
(Russian Rhapsody and Russisches Roulette) all over Europe.
Russisches Roulette has not been available for a while, thus we would like to present
the re-release to you. This CD combines the melancholy of tango with the Russian
soul. A journey to the realms of emotions, the strenght, the grief and the happiness.
Finally, the CD is back! New cover design 2004:
