So .. I have been wondering for a while why many Tango songs sound like prescription drugs.
For me the latest one is ‘Danzarin’ – surely this should be available in blister packs of 12, 24, 48 and 96 pink, film coated tablets?
But no – it is in fact a great side that goes so well in a tight Tanda with Quejas de Bandoneon, Melancolico, Responso .. so many wonderful 1960’s Troilo’s
And when we dig around on this dubiously inspired quest we are in fact rewarded by a chance to watch Troilo in action.
I have read so many times that he could make you cry with a single note from his bandoneon – at that passage from about 3:10 we can just see that skill in action and perhaps get a sense for what it must have been like to have actually been there on the night.
What a drug free pleasure.
