In the year of the 25th anniversary of Piazzolla's death, Argentinean-born violinist Tomás Cotik and Chinese- American pianist Tao Lin follow their critically acclaimed Tango Nuevo with more of Piazzollas richest and most exciting compositions. These fresh adaptations for mostly two or three musicians preserve and celebrate the Nuevo tango masters legacy.
Another great recordings by Cuban pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Dionisio Ramon Emilio Valdés (Cuba, 1918-2013), aka 'Bebo Valdés'. The album was recorded in New York in four sessions during March 2001, when Bebo was already 82 years old. This album earned the win in the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album. Together with his piano Bebo is accompanied by Israel López 'Cachao' (bass) and fellow veteran Carlos 'Patato' Valdes with congas and percussion. Additionally, in three of the issues involved with alto sax and clarinet the instrumentalist Paquito D'Rivera, noted for his sophisticated solos.
Album released in Spain in the 80's. It is the first published collection of songs in Spanish performed by the pianist, guitarist and singer Nat King Cole. Nat only had musical and pianistic received from his mother and soon he turned his attention to jazz, swing and gospel, along with classical music. His artistic activity, although it started in the middle of the decade of 30's, did not stand up to early 40's and ended up having a number 1 in sales in 1950 with the theme 'Mona Lisa'. From 1958 Nat expanded his global popularity to the Spanish-speaking countries beginning to sing songs in Spanish, which he did until 1962, but their language skills were lacking. From that time and the Spanish repertoire is compiled this first album.
Would love to hear what they thought top executives of the Arion label, they decided to start posting Andean folk music in this case "The Calchakís."
"Nauka Charitram aka The Boat Performance" was the first ever Opera kind of composition set in Carnatic Classical music written by Saint Thyagaraja in 18th century. IMO, It's very difficult to explain this kind of music. So, I would advice you to go through the scans that I included to read the superb sleeve notes written by Christian Ledoux. 'Trichur Ramchandran', One of the greatest legends of Carnatic Classical music has performed this auspicious performance along with his wife 'Charumathi Ramachandran' and many revered Carnatic Musicians were superbly accompanied in this rare piece of Carnatic Opera. Heartily Recommended.
