The Black Butterflies -1 de Mayo (Self Produced – 2010)

A delightful whimsy surrounds the room where 1 de Mayo descends, like a diaphanous sheet of sound amid its celestial wail. So extraordinary is the musical ensemble fronted by the hypnotic sound of Mercedes Figueras’ saxophones; doubly intriguing when entwined with the ululations and caterwauling ablutions of Tony Larokko’s horns.

Aslan takes the relatively rigid structure of the written music and dance form, the Tango, into a stratospheric space where [...]

This fine record Un Monton de Notas by Emilio Teubal and his grupo projecto, La Balteuband is another fine example [...]

But Pasion Por La Vida takes Davidson's love for the music of South America a shade further than - Mango Tango, Amor Por El Tango and Rogers in Rio [...]

Fernando Huergo – Provinciano (Sunnyside Records 2008)

This is not just another record of music by an Argentinean musician. Provinciano is a brave attempt to create a new metaphor based on traditional harmonics and rhythms that inhabit the Argentinean Tango and folkloric music. Fernando Huergo, bassist extraordinaire makes a huge leap of faith as he - first explains - and then demonstrates the depth of his creativity [...]
