MDC Live Arts Celebrates the Rebirth of Jazz Tango with Pablo Aslan Quintet
When the great Argentinean tango master Astor Piazzolla died in 1992, there were few musicians keeping his music alive. But Argentine-born, Brooklyn-based bassist, bandleader, and producer Pablo Aslan has brought an extraordinary focus on tangoâ€™s relationship to jazz, and on Piazzollaâ€™s ideas about jazz tango. Piazzolla in Brooklyn, the latest recording by Aslan, was inspired by Take Me Dancing, a 1959 jazz tango recording by Astor Piazzolla. Newly recorded in Buenos Aires with a group of musically bilingual Argentine players, Piazzolla in Brooklyn updates Takes Me Dancing into state-of-the-art jazz tango. Join us for a one-night performance of the rebirth of Jazz Tango.
