CD Reviews

Good starter
Alexandra D. Lamarsh | Renton, WA USA | 04/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My first experience with an all tango CD but really enjoy it. The recording itself is not up to todays standards i.e. 20 bit etc. But the authenticity of the musical performance is there. It is also quite eclectic in its range of recordings, from simple instrumentals to full orchestral pieces."
Mixed feelings
O. M. Suarez | Mayagüez, Puerto Rico | 05/14/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a sort of brisky production of a tango collection. While some of the songs are undeniably beautiful and part of Argentina's tango tradition, their renditions are not as good as the songs deserved. There are better interpreters of Buenos Aires soulful music. However, not everything is just Ok; Piazzola's "Adiós Nonino" is worth paying for this CD. For those not familiar with tango, be aware that this is just a collection, that is a small sampling of a humongously rich musical tradition in Argentina. This CD with just 3 interpreters cannot reflect that richness as much as I would have wanted."
Good collection

"I agree, it's a very good addition to anyone's collection."
