Product Overview

The Tango Saloon's avant-garde version of the Argentinean dance form is driven by a restless sense of experimentation, and built on a strong foundation of tradition and musical technique. "March of the Big Shoe" is a modernist piece for tuba, piano, and saxophone, while "Man With the Bongos" is a suspense soundtrack waiting for its movie. "Still I Cannot Do the Tango" is bossa nova for acoustic guitar and viola, and their moody cover of Astor Piazzolla's "Libertango" conjures Calexico's Southwestern textures.

Artist Bio
The Tango SaloonHungry for Tango? Astor Piazzolla meets Ennio Morricone on this Tango-flavored album with a twist of spaghetti western. The Tango genre is explored, violated and blended not only with the twang of country, but everything from jazz to Cuban music, classical chamber, improvisation and experimental electronics.The body count behind Julian Curwin?s Tango Saloon totals fifteen, with home base being Sydney, Australia. Instrumentation is as diverse as the members with all types of brass, percussion and strings incorporated into the vignettes. As with the traditional Tango, The Tango Saloon is an equally visual experience with their live shows consisting of half a dozen cowboy-clad musicians and rotating guest vocalists. Think of it as Pigface for the classical revivalist set. The revues are those of Sydney legend with each outing supporting a cast of characters that aren?t always part of the plan. Case in point, the night three girls showed up in cowgirl regalia and staged a saloon fight in dance or other evenings where untraditional tango dancers take to the club floor to give modern reinterpretation to the Latin American dance.
