"This 2 CD set might be a bit avant garde for some, with a fair sprinkling of Piazzolla and others, but there is something for us sensualists as well, notably Gran Hotel Victoria, a raunchy number with a bass accompaniment that runs its tongue down your back from the nape of your neck to the cleft in your buttocks. Then there is nothing but a sweet tinkly piano, reminiscent of the Palm Court of said hotel; or perhaps a quiet post-coital ciggie in the privacy of your suite upstairs. But soon the breathy pulse of the bandoneon indicates a returning urge and it all happens again. Twice. It ends in a climax of wailing reeds and sweat-soaked sheets. And all in 2 minutes 35 seconds. Paddy Ashdown couldn't have done better. This is followed by La Trapera and Parrillera, two wild and abandoned milongas scattering discarded inhibitions and underwear in their wake. At the other end of the scale, there are versions of La Cachila and Chique so arty and intellectual that I didn't recognise them."
