Recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Switzerland in July 1986.
This set offers seven compositions by Astor Piazzolla, recorded live with his quintet and guest artist Gary Burton at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, 1986. The sonics of the vibraphone, as well as Burton's distinct approach to the instrument, allow it to mingle perfectly with Piazzolla's bandone=n (a type of accordion), while the leader's ensemble of bass, piano, guitar, and violin features players well versed in his music.
These compositions draw on Piazzolla's four decades in music and include a suite written especially for Gary Burton. The drama and romance of this music is undeniable, and it's remarkable that music this compelling was once considered blasphemous by Argentine tango purists. There are many remarkable releases by both Piazzolla and Burton, but THE NEW TANGO stands as a shining example of both artists at the peak of their powers.
