Astor Piazzolla: anything else like him?

Post by onthebandwagon » Wed Nov 24, 2021 2:32 pm

I use to be really into Piazzolla, not really much other tango, although I've tried. Such beautiful melancholic music he made. Can you think of someone else who had transformed the genera they worked in like he did? Seems like tango was sort of static until the maestro came along.


I slapped butter all over keys, knobs, cords, smeared screens with Coleslaw, pelted with Reese's Pieces, broke a Twix in half, stuck in... and after... I swung them all over above my head, pirouetted on their corners on top of a shaky rattan diner table spun like tops, but made sure nothing dropped. Toasted coconut n tested for salmonella were found in surprising places weeks after. I had so much fun.

I always thought that was some silent film star.
