(Also look in this thread ''Taking Sides: Buena Vista Social Club vs. O Brother Where Art Thou? (Mark)''). There was a bit of talking abt him there. Didn't know he was huge but then again nevah paid much attention to world music. I got to him when i heard some of the stuff John Adams did with his string arrangements. And then I searched on a bit of info.

Avoid for 5 years. Then search "Libertango".
"Vuelvo al sur" is an amazing, beautiful song. Gotan do a version of
this too, which is nice in a downtempo context, but not as beautiful
as the original.

And it's "Piazzolla," with two "z"s.

Well, civilized parties :-) The sort of parties I've started
attending no I'm in my 30s, and almost married, and are attended by
university lecturers and people with grown up kids. I don't mean
The sort of parties where people also play Buena Vista or cool jazz.
Nor did I? I'll rephrase what i said : to a 'bloody' party. How abt
I mean how can you hear it above ppl's chatter.
It's no use avoiding it for five years. I mean, there could a really
popular romantic comedy (starring tom hanks and meg ryan of course!)
with Piazzola (two z's are you happy now Lee) in that time and then
it might get really huge like Buena Vista so I'll keep going now,
Anyway, who cares if the yuppies are buying it, you know?
Tango: zero hour is really good but what abt live stuff. Actual
titles (though tahnks, you've been helpful).

my favorite is Rough Dancer and the Cyclical Night though all three of those American Clavés are great. The mid to late 70's stretch are all key: Libertango, Lumiere, Persecuta & Biyuya. (1st and 3rd probably my preferentials but I should check the other two because I am years older now since the last listens)

The only bit of piazolla action that I've gotten since those classic nu- ilx days has been a documentary on BBC four about his life w/ full interviews with sidemen, family and a ton of footage (gotta have that!) and another viewing of "happy together". Listening to the music on that is as good a reason as any to catch that film again.

saw Happy Together again the other night (devastating!) so Tango Apasionado has now been running through my head for two days. so beautiful.
