A new live album by Solo Tango Orquesta just came out. Have a listen!
It's easy to find modern covers of the better known hits of Juan D'Arienzo - primarily from his Golden Age era. His career spanned three additional decades, however, and the new album by Los Herederos del Compás contains several songs you have probably never heard in their original form. Plus a few new ones!
Look at that: Osvaldo Fresedo got the Andariega treatment! How did it go? Come find out!
Hear, hear: the Cachivaches are back, this time with an album filled with vocals!
Finnish tango is a known quantity, albeit somewhat exotic. Have you heard about Danish tango, though? No? Here's your chance.
Just as I was losing hope that there would be any danceable new tango recordings coming out, Tango Bardo saved the day with their new album - 'con Roberto Minondi'. Have a listen!
The summer is coming to a close, and I have to figure out whether I'll be dancing in the fall.
I love, love D'Arienzo's work from the 1960s. It's bright, energetic, pumps you up. The sound is much cleaner than his Golden age output, thanks to the superior recording technology of the day. And it's not as overbearing as his last period from the 1970s.
This week's tanda features valses sung by Jorge Valdez in the late 1960s.
This week's tanda features slower instrumentals recorded by Florindo Sassone in the early 1970s.
