Cuesta Arriba Tango Club

skip to this month's selections

Welcome to our Tango Music Club!

Nothing improves your dancing so much as a good feeling for the special qualities of tango music. The idea of the club was to help you build a library of good tango music, tailored to your own tastes.

The club ran for 8 years, from December 2008 to December 2015, but was forced to close because of the reducing supply of tango CDs, itself a consequence of on-line listening (youtube and spotify) and of course copying.

Aníbal Troilo - Tres Amigos (1944)

BMG 659441

Beautiful tracks, with Marino really showing why he suits this slower pace. Tres amigos, La vi llegar and Después are classics, whilst Chiqué - a Piazzolla arrangement - shows just why Piazzolla's arrangements were pushing the boundaires of the time. The milonga El desafio is delightful and, mysteriously, seldom heard. A must.

LCDM 2742314

A wonderful disc of Pedro Laurenz, one of the most important orchestras of the Golden Age who never achieved the success he deserved and made relatively few recordings. If you already have the (now deleted) Laurenz CD on Euro Records, you don't need this. If you don't - you need this.

Tango de Los Angeles vol.3

TARG 63337

Here is the third volume of the balanced, classy music of the Two Angels, pianist and orchestra leader Angel D'Agostino and his singer Angel Vargas (we brought you volume 1 in August 2010 and volume 2 in December 2010).

This perfectly balanced dance music is just perfect for relaxed dancing this is still elegant and subtle Unforgettable classics such as El aristócrata (Shusheta) and the milonga Señores, yo soy del centro - in fact, there are enough milongas here to make a nice D'Agostino milonga tanda. And you can make a vals tanda as well. Yo tengo una novia is another classic, and the little heard Que me pasará a real jewel.

  1. Tomo y obligo
  2. El aristocrata (shusheta)
  3. En lo de Laura milonga
