For those with exotic tastes, vibraphonist Gary Burton's LIBERTANGO, a tribute to the music of the late tango master Astor Piazzolla, is a treat for the senses. As with his previous efforts in this genre, Burton captures the authentic spirit of Piazzolla's music while infusing it with the contemporary freshness of his legendary vibraphone technique.
It's the distinctive flavor that the vibraphone brings to this ensemble, which includes authentic Latin musicians like Fernando Suarez-Paz (violin) and Hector Console (bass), that gives this session such a zestfully unique sound. The music, recorded in the tango's birthplace of Buenos Aires, Argentina, is all Piazzolla, however, and fans of this most passionate of exotic dances will find no fault in Burton and company's careful execution. Particularly exceptional cuts include the dark-flavored opening title track, which features Burton on a mesmerizing solo introduction, the spirited "Fuga Y Misterio," and the beautifully intricate "Milonga Loca."
