Editorial Reviews

2007 Grammy Nomination!

Tango Legends is a defining work of the classic tango repertoire. Vayo Raimondo's elegant vocal interpretations express the poetry and drama of the popular art form. This rich collection of themes, recorded in Montevideo with authentic traditional instrumentation, captures the essence of the unique urban music. These selections from the Golden Era of tango are performed with virtuosity and contemporary sensitivity.

Vayo's singular delivery of color and phrasing is accompanied by superb performers of the genre: Toto Damario (bandoneon), Mario Nunez (guitar) and Miguel Pose (double bass). Vayo also features these masters of tango in several unprecedented instrumental performances. Tango Legends will enrich any collection, inspiring tango listeners and tango dancers.

Vayo - Tango - Pan 1009

His full name is Vayo Raimondo, but on his albums he just goes by Vayo (there is no exact English pronunciation, but it sort of sounds like vah'-joe with a little shzz in the middle). He is one the leading tango singers in the world (yes, tango music is mostly vocal music, not instrumental).

Sometime in the late 1800s the cowboys working cattle and sheep in Argentina and Uruguay on either side of the River Plate in South America would come into town wearing their boots, big hats and leather chaps. They wanted to blow off steam so they went to the women of the night in the bars and bordellos, and along with short-term love the couples drank and danced. The men liked to show off their athletic ability and strut their stuff, and the women responded in kind. The music was played on various-sized acoustic guitars often with some percussion, especially castanets and tambourines and such. The other main instrument was the bandoneon, which probably came from Europe, but was basically a squeezebox accordion with buttons for both hands rather than a keyboard on one side. The groups on the bandstand also had singers who always tackled the tried-and-true subjects of love lost and love found, but at first had more rural messages that the audience could relate to. Soon the music and dance was embraced by the urban centers and the lyrics began to reflect their lifestyles too. The Golden Age of tango was in the 1920s when the bands got larger (reflective of the "Big Band Era" worldwide) and the singers became superstars in South America, although the music also became popular everywhere from movies like Rudolf Valentino's silent classic "The Sheik.

This is authentic-sounding tango music with its emotional vocal interpretation and its acoustic musicianship which features only three instruments - Mario Nunez' acoustic guitar, Miquel Pose's bass along with the great Toto Damario on bandoneon. Toto died after the album was recorded, but the CD was dedicated to him.

Vayo follows the tango tradition in which the music is played for listening as well as for dancing. Vayo makes tangos intimate, personal, poetic, and dramatic.

This is an absolutely beaufiful CD. The music and voice are one. They belong together. It is smooth, relaxing, and very romantic, yet has a touch of tango to give it that beautiful sound. This could be one of my all time favorite CD's.
