"Piazzolla fans rejoice! When I received notice of this album, I looked over the list of songs and thought OK, I know most of these and its going to be the typical compilation of the SOS, but I'll buy it for the few songs with which I am unfamiliar. What I got was a pleasant surprise! I am floored by some of the tremendous arrangements presented here. Of 20 cuts on the CD, I had not heard 19 of the arrangements before and this after many years of listening to Piazzolla. BMG Entertainment, which compiled the compositions on this CD has done an excellent job of mixing older material with the contemporary. I like every song but Lo Que Vendra, Nonino, Preparense, La Primera Palabra, and Chiquilin de Bachin are standouts. The CD opens with the Piazzolla signature tune Adios Nonino and closes with a smashing rendition of Verano Porteno. If you are a true Piazzolla fan, you are going to like this one!"
