Tango Nuevo Cabaret
Tango Nuevo Cabaret – A Tribute to Astor Piazzolla by Sergei Tumas presents some of the most recognizable works of Astor Piazzolla, decade by decade, starting from his Tango Nuevo genre originated in 1954, strongly influenced by American jazz and world music. The album expands Piazzolla’s music in pursuing his vision to blend Tango, American Jazz and classical music. It features an eclectic selection of Piazzolla’s masterpieces from his classical movement to modern jazz interpretations. The sixteen piece tango jazz orchestra brings a unique arrangement of renowned compositions, ranging from “Primavera Porteña” (spring movement) one of his Four Seasons, to “Duo De Amor” (a soundtrack used in the movie “El Exilio de Gardel”), to the New Orleans jazz style of “Adiós Nonino” (a requiem of father’s farewell arranged in a festive celebration), to a modern version of “Libertango” (involving a new horn section) as well as “Fuga 9” (a classical composition influenced from progressions of Bach to Debussy and Ravel). Unlike Piazzolla’s original compositions, primarily bandoneon driven with instrumental parts being played in the background as a shadow effect, these new arrangements bring us close to hear all instrumental parts in a unilateral balanced position, giving a more vivid illustration of the music as well as creating a more suitable music for dramatic dance and choreography.

Preserving and elevating Piazzolla’s musical vision even further drove this creative project. Tango Nuevo Cabaret album offers a new interpretation of Piazzolla’s music from a generation of today’s splendid musicians such as a virtuoso bandoneon player Peter Soave and renowned Jorge "Coco" Trivisonno as well as renowned Argentine tango singer Martin De Leon. Tango arrangements were created by legendary Argentine tango composer Walter Rios (who had worked with Piazzolla) along with jazzy arrangements created by the talented American Jazz musician Miles Mosley, elevating the traditional sound of jazz music and blending it with tango in a fresh fusion.
