Sunday’s Soundtrack for Surfing: Astor Piazzola

Live at Montreal Jazz Festival, c. 1988 (but then again, my Spanish ain’t so good….)

With his classic (and incredible) quintet (which, by the way, kicks Flippin’ Ass!).

Not the greatest sound quality but definitely the greatest music quality.

‘Nuff said.

Get it in your head.

You know the drill:

Press play.

Go on about your day.

Monday’s Music Box: Astor Piazzola

One of my all-time favorite musicians and composers, playing a piece for orchestra and bandoneón that he composed for his father.

(Though to be honest, I prefer his smaller ensemble work–call it “Chamber Tango”)

If you were not already familiar with his music, let this be your introduction (and possibly a preview of next Sunday’s Soundtrack for Surfing….)

He elevated Tango to a whole new level.


Monday’s Music Box: My new favorite….

…track, album, band.  You name it.

Amazing sounds from a group that I have not been able to find out much about except that they are from Argentina.

With a touch of Africa, Asia and Jazz….

Stunning work.

Such a broad range of sounds, colors and textures.

A dream of an aural landscape for the mind to wander in.

Beautiful, beautiful music.
