Overview

Ruben D'Artagnan Gonzalez is a celebrated composer, arranger and violinist who uses this album as a vehicle to demonstrate his interpretation of the word tango. The influences for his compositions come from his father, who was Gonzalez's first violin teacher and a tango orchestra leader in Argentina. Gonzalez and co-composers Mariano Krauz and Susana Mendelievich put their own stamp on the style with tempo and tonal variations that show they studied many forms of music, including classical and jazz. Gonzalez uses two traditional tango combos comprised of violin, piano bass and bandoneon on seven of the tracks. He gives the remaining seven songs a bit of a twist by using a sextet, which adds clarinet and flute to the instruments mentioned above, and a string quartet. He also brings together 15 of the worlds most acclaimed tango musicians for this recording. The result is a strong backup for Gonzalez's violin work, featured on "New York" and "Dodegubiao." It also produces a record that is exciting to listen-or dance to.
