Pablo Aslan Quintet - The Rebirth of Jazz Tango
When the great Argentinean tango master Astor Piazzolla died in 1992, there were few musicians keeping his music alive. But Argentine-born, Brooklyn-based bassist, bandleader, and producer Pablo Aslan has brought an extraordinary focus on tangoâ€™s relationship to jazz, and on Piazzollaâ€™s ideas about jazz tango. Piazzolla in Brooklyn, the latest recording by Aslan, was inspired by Take Me Dancing, a 1959 jazz tango recording by Astor Piazzolla. Newly recorded in Buenos Aires with a group of musically bilingual Argentine players, Piazzolla in Brooklyn updates Takes Me Dancing into state-of-the-art jazz tango. Join us for a one-night performance of the rebirth of Jazz Tango.
