Tangarte

A few months ago I got an email from Juanjo Passo from Mälmo, Sweden. He had come accross this website and had downloaded our book of leadsheets. He has his own band called Tangarte which has pretty much the same orchestration as our big band. I emailed him some of our charts and he sent me a big packet of arrangemnts in the mail.

Juanjo leads Tangarte and plays guitar. His dad, Juan Jose Passo Senior, is the singer. He has 2 violins, cello, bass and piano as well. Hs wife Marcella is a Tango dancer and teacher as well as a painter.

Here is a sampling of 4 songs that Jaunjo chose from his album "Ecos de Tango".

Since you didn't list a bandoneon or accordion player in the lineup, I got very curious about what a tango band might sound like sans accordion-type instrument. They are a wonderful band and these cuts are both beautiful and fiery. But they do have a terrific bandoneon/accordion player! (I would guess the former, but I'm no expert.)
