Tango Instrumentales Vol. II
Danza y Movimento

By RAFFI MENESHIAN

Published May 30, 2006

Que Conbonicito: Tango Instrumentales Vol. II is a charming set of historical Argentinean tango recordings from 1929-1932. As with any historical recording, the sound is faded and a bit harsh. However, fear not—this collection has been digitally remastered, giving it a nice boost. Much like the recordings from Traditional Crossroads, Danza Y Movimento has meticulously researched and presented us with an important sound document. The recordings feature two main personalities: Pedro Maffia and his backup ensemble, Orquesta Tipica Brunswick. According to published accounts, Pedro Maffia ushered in a new sound for tango recordings by being more expressive and loose with his bandoneon playing. Indeed Maffia was an innovator and these recordings are considered by many to be the turning point in tango. Like other bandoneon innovators such as Astor Piazzolla and Dino Saluzzi, the excitement and innovation that Maffia creates on this collection is infectious. The Toranzo and Rossi composed piece, “Jueves,” is a standout. Sonic quality aside, Tango Instrumentales Vol. II is a welcome addition to the library of significant recordings remastered and reissued on CD.
