Astor Piazzolla Reunion

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Gary Burton; Genre: Jazz

If any contemporary musician has the right to memorialize Astor Piazzolla, it's famed vibraphonist Burton, who recorded with the Argentinean tango maestro back in the mid-'80s, years before the current swarm of Piazzolla devotees. Working with members of Piazzolla's crack ensembles, Astor Piazzolla Reunion (Concord Jazz) reverently addresses the romantic temperament that infused all the work of the great composer and bandonion virtuoso.
