Daniel Binelli: Tango

Bandoneonist Binelli, a former member of Astor Piazzolla’s New Tango Sextet, offers eight original and two Piazzolla compositions. Marcelo Chiodi plays Gato-like tenor on the rhapsodic “Tango Nuestro,” a mix of traditional and new tango. The melancholy “A Los Que Se Fueron” is a musical elegy to past tango masters. “Preludio y Candombe” and “Grassa y Cemento” blend tango and African candombe. “Grasa y Cemento” contains percussion, chanting, the violin of Julio Cerana and, as in every tune, Binelli’s insistent bandoneon.
