At a time when Latin pop heartthrobs are big in the music business, with stars like Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony, it's rather remarkable to come across a singer celebrating the work of a tango crooner who died nearly 60 years ago. Alvarez's dramatic tenor is suitably strong and passionate throughout. Unfortunately, the producers fall in the rather morbid trap of setting up a duet between Alvarez and Gardel using a recording of "Mi Buenos Aires Querido" from 1934, which sounds particularly forced here. Other than that, this is a moving labor of love by a very gifted singer. ~ Tim Sheridan
