The dramatic phrasing and broad-stroked passions of Astor Piazzolla's tango nuevo become reincarnated in the thrilling music of Tango No. 9. The bulk of the compositions on this album are Piazzolla's and the group plays them with vivacity and enthusiasm, as if they were backing the master himself. Elegant, but with a wink, this San Francisco quartet offers lively Argentinean tango music with grace and fun.
