Astor PiazzollaAstor Piazzolla 1944 to 1964 – Viente Anos De Vanguardia Con Sus Conjuntos ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Very early work from Astor Piazzolla – recorded in the decades before he first started hitting fame on the international scene – and with a sound that shows that his skills on the bandoneon were every bit as great in his youth as they were in his later years! The music here is a bit less modernist than some of the nuevo tango modes of Astor's 70s years – but the tracks have a very similar interplay between piano, violin, and accordion – and even when larger orchestrations might creep into the mix, they never get in the way of the standout solo instrumentation at the core! Titles include the beautiful extended "Tango Ballet" – plus "Caliente", "Reparense", "El Recodo", "Orgullo Criollo", "Lunfardo", and "Bandoneon Guitarra Y Bajo". CD

✨✧ Xavier CugatCugi's Cocktails ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cugat and cocktails – what could be better? The set's a bit later than Xavier Cugat's classic vintage – but in a really nice way, one that has him opening up with some groovy 60s rhythms! The style is still heavily Latin, but there's also some nice influences from bossa nova and some of the dance trends that were creeping into the dancefloors of the time – and arranger Hal Mooney gives the whole thing a playful kind of approach that's still as rhythmic and percussive as Cugat's other albums, but which also uses the horn charts to carve some nice colors over the top! Titles include the excellent original "Cugi's Cocktail" – a great slow-groover with a soul jazz finish – plus "Manhattan", "Zombie", "Singapore", "Daiquiri", "Old Fashioned", and "Cuba Libre". CD
(Out of print, 2005 digipack pressing – in nice shape!)
