The night Tango met with Jazz & Fussion!
Edy Gibert | Buenos Aires, Argentina | 04/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a perfect expample of Piazzola's life-time effort to free Tango from its classic structure and pre-conceived rythm. This superb concert shows what Piazzola was capable of doing with the very popular music of the City of Buenos Aires. This CD offers an excelent recording, nice and emotional communication between Piazzola and the audience, and the selections chosen are among the best of the composer. The material includes the good and long version of "Adios Nonino" (with the piano solo part), impressive and challenging versions of "Verano Porteño", "Milonga del Angel", and "Muerte de Angel" (vintage Piazzola), the expansive music of Concert for Quintet ("Concierto Para Quinteto") and the jazzy sounds of Contrabajismo and Mumuki. Thanks to Piazzola, Tango is more than an exotic night-show for turists in the long nights of Buenos Aires. This is an extraordinary chance for the listener to allow Piazzola to take him to a place where the emotions of Tango meet with Jazz, Fussion, and Classic music. Other related artists: Cacho Tirao, Anibal Troilo, Luis Salinas, and Al Dimeola (accoustic recordings only)."

"I love Piazzolla's music. I own several CDs and I am currently into compositions by his followers. Yet, this CD is the one I always choose to initiate my friends to this wonderful music. It has great selection, it is interpreted with great passion, and it sounds great. Even the part when he talks (briefly) about himself and his music warms my heart everytime. In fact, I am going to listen to my copy as soon as I am done writing this. Enjoy !"

"This was an icon of the pop culture, why not? of all the culture in general, Piazzolla's greatest concert in a city that's a very crittical about the music, but when was happen, was a boom, and this record show the genious, sensitve, magnificence & a deep humility (as all the greatest) masterpieces for all the music (in special of tango) like Adios Nonino, Lunfardo, Milonga del Angel & Michelangelo was fabulous, i'm sorry that don't get Libertango, VIVA SUPER ASTOR"
