This week's tanda features instrumentals recorded in 1961 by the orchestra of José Basso.
I had a look at the new album Misión Tango by Cuarteto Soltango and bring it to your attention. Have a listen!
This week's tanda features three 1950s valses by the orchestra of Roberto Caló.
Public service announcement: a new label, Tango Time Travel, has released the complete recordings of Pedro Laurenz in various digital formats. It's a treasure trove of music that used to be for the most part only available as second-rate transfers.
Let's do another Golden Age tango tanda this week, this time featuring the orchestra of Lucio Demare with his singer Horacio Quintana.

I went to my archives for a traditional tango tanda and found this one with the neglected orchestra of José García and his singer, Alfredo Rojas.
I give you ~ 3 hours of contemporary tangos, milongas, and valses, to dance at home or just listen to as you wrap up your work-week.
I had a look at the 2020 album Tangostoria by Bandonegro and bring it to your attention. Have a listen!
These milongas are relaxed, a bit drunk, and not at all pretentious.
