Astor Piazzolla (1996) -57 Minutos Con La Realidad

Artist: Astor Piazzolla
Albums: 57 Minutos con la Realidad
Released: 1996
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 118 MB

A final release from Astor Piazzolla, recorded shortly before his death and edited for release following notes that he left behind. The work stems largely from a session in the BBC studios, and also from a recording session in Germany. The playing is wonderful here -- all of the pieces fit well together. The piano is especially brash, courtesy of Gerardo Gandini. One other notable item here: the inclusion of a second bandoneon to work with Piazzolla's own in the sextet. For fans of Piazzolla, this is a wonderful album. For those that aren't full fledged devotees, it may also serve as a decently good introduction to the deep world of nuevo tango headed by Piazzolla. ~ Adam Greenberg,
