A delightful tango album that exudes the rich history and sensuality of exotic Buenos Aires! Carlos Garcia, who has been steeped in the music of his homeland for decades, credits the remarkable atmosphere of this legendary city for infusing his music with the true essence of the tango. Garcia, who directs the Tango All-Stars on this recording, was born in 1914. He began his musical career as a pianist during the 1930s, gradually gearing his performances more and more towards the traditional music of Argentina. After he returned to the world of tango, he began conducting studio orchestras and accompanied many celebrated singers. In addition to tango, Garcia's musical interests have expanded to involve him in such diverse and eclectic fields as jazz and Hawaiian music. Such influences have given his style a rich, broad appeal. Garcia once stated in an interview that of all the musical genres in which he had worked, it was the tango that gave him the fullest! arena in which to exercise his abilities. He claimed that when working in the realm of the tango, his arrangements seemed to flow with the utmost ease and creativity, and he believed that the remarkable atmosphere of Buenos Aires deserved credit for his fluent and natural music.
