They Say All Music Guide

A nice album of tango arrangements for guitar by David Tanenbaum. The pieces are all compositions of Astor Piazzolla, and it is something of a tribute album as such. The music is played rather well, as Tanenbaum is one of the premier non-rock guitarists around. Arrangements of the music come from former Piazzolla guitarist Sergio Assad, Leo Brouwer, Augustin Carlevaro, and Tanenbaum himself.
