Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The tango has always retained its image of a dance unashamedly sensual in character. Developed in the poorer districts of Buenos Aires during the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, it combined new music and dance styles from diffe

Amazon.com

If you want to find out if you'll enjoy this collection of guitar transcriptions, listen to track 7, the "Military Tap" by Mariano Mores. If you can resist the ingenuity of the arrangement and the verve of the performance, this disc is not for you. For further evidence, try track 13, Astor Piazzolla's "Midnight in Buenos Aires," an amazing example of Villadangos's imagination as an arranger. This guitarist, who comes from Buenos Aires himself, has obviously absorbed the tango tradition and idiom completely. You might think guitar solo arrangements would be disappointing, lacking the inherent color of the typical tango band. Not so in this exhilarating collection, which also juxtaposes internationally known tango composers like Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel with others much less well known. Villadangos also supplies his own helpful program notes for this completely satisfying, memorable recital. --Leslie Gerber

Very nice music.

For all of you who remember the original "Addams Family", give this album a listen and you'll understand why Gomez behaved as he did whenever he heard a Tango!

This is a wonderful album of acoustic guitar music. I've always loved the Tango and the so-called "classical" guitar. This album brings them together delightfully. The album transports me to a smoke-filled Argentinean nightclub where the Tango is danced very passionately. I agree with the review to this album; tract 13 is wonderful.
If you are into the Tango or guitar music or just want to be transported, in your mind, to a different time and place, buy this disc.

This is by far one of the best guitar CDs and the best performance I have ever heard. So far I have 3 cds from Villadangos and they are all brilliant. Strongly recommended!

I got this CD on a whim; it arrived just before we were to take a car trip so, I unwrapped it and took it along. I put it in the CD player about halfway to our destination--from the opening notes I knew I was onto something spectacular. Each piece seemed to increase the pleasure; by the time I reached track 13 Piazzolla's "Midnight in Buenos Aires" I was hooked worse than a heroin addict. I've listened to it a dozen times since and it dosen't get stale. Who ever wrote the "product info" blurb at the middle of the page was right. If you can be still during Mores "Military Tap" you'd better check your pulse 'cause you might be dead!

I want to see some detailed photos of Victor Villadangos; I'm convinced that he has a minimum of three arms with six digits on each hand. He is trully remarkable on this album (as he is on on "Lauro Guitar Music 2"). I think this is fast becoming one of my "desert island discs".

For all of you who remember the original "Addams Family", give this album a listen and you'll understand why Gomez behaved as he did whenever he heard a Tango!
