    Great!

    El periodo del sexteto es considerado como el de sonido mas "oscuro" en toda la obra de Piazzolla.
    Trata de conseguir CDs de la epoca del quinteto (quizas el grupo mas "perfecto" para la musica de Piazzolla), la sonoridad de los temas es mas clara o abierta. El Quinteto tuvo dos etapas: 1960-1970 y 1978-1987 (aproximadamente). Los del ultimo quinteto poseen una calidad de sonido superior (Zero Hour, La Camorra, etc), pero todos son altamente recomendables.

    :-)

    The sextet period is considered the "darkest" sounding among Piazzolla's work.
    Try to get some cds from the quintet period (maybe the more "perfect" group for Piazzolla's music), the sound of songs is more clear or open. The Quintet existed in two different periods:
    roughly 1960-1970 and 1978-1987. The last quintet albums have a better sound (Zero Hour, La Camorra, etc), but all of them are highly recommended.

    Tango:Zero Hour is maybe his most "known" album by US people,as it was the first one having an US label, and thats when he started touring the US regularly (mid 80's). Some of the songs on that album are older songs, rerecorded specially for that album.

    I went there, after your first recommendation. That helped ring a bell in the CD store, nice site too.

    According to the liner notes (Luna), more traditional tango artists often threatened his life, waited outside his house to rough him up, one even barged in on a studio interview and put a pistol to his head. ¡muy dramático!
