Music Review: Pablo Ziegler & Metropole Orkest - Amsterdam Meets New Tango
"Buenos Aires Report," the opening composition of Argentine pianist/composer Pablo Ziegler's collaboration with the Netherlands' Metropole Orkest, Amsterdam Meets New Tango, is a good indication of the emotional grit that characterizes the album's aesthetic. Ziegler, as Gustavo Conde's liner notes explain, is "a key exponent of contemporary Buenos Aires urban music, centered on pure tango" seasoned with "aspects of jazz improvisation." This is the new tango, a genre pioneered by Astor Piazzolla , and Ziegler had learned from the master.
