A slightly older release from Astor Piazzolla on the old Atoll label. A number of tracks feature Jose Angel Trelles singing, along with the band that Piazzolla had put together. The tangos are, as always, perfection (this is what Piazzolla did, and he did it very well). There are some relative rarities here, such as "Jeanne Y Paul" and "Olhos de Resaca. In general, this album contains works that are somewhat denser than Piazzolla's usually sparse style, and perhaps at a lower tempo than much of his work. The vocal work by Trelles is reminiscent in ways of Horacio Ferrer's work in the Maria de Buenos Aires opera (and indeed, a few of the songs Trelles sings are from the opera), and in many ways simply similar to a flamenco singer. The album is perhaps more rare than much of Piazzolla's work, which has in large part been re-released, but it may be worth the effort to find for a collector.

For Piazzolla, Maya Beiser and pianist extraordinaire (and trained actor) Anthony de Mare picked "Adios Nonino", "Le Grand Tango", the virtuous solo piano number "La Mufa", an original oboe/piano version of "Ave Maria" and a trio variant of "Oblivión", then transcribed these works for their intended duetizing purposes, always sensitive to the fact that unwatched, a piano tends to overpower a solo. But in general and since Nin's pieces make up 12 of the 17 tracks and Piazzolla's "Ave Maria" and "Oblivión" are of the dreamy sort, think Ravel. Special mention is due de Mare's seemingly double-jointed prowess on the black and white keys and Beiser's virtuoso yet light touch on the cello. Their combined musicianship - again in best Piazzolla tradition - often has them sound far denser and multi-stranded than a mere two contributors.
