Notes & Reviews:

Legendary tango performer and composer Astor Piazzolla gained experience of jazz in New York and classical form and technique through studies with Alberto Ginastera. His work lends itself perfectly to arrangement for all kinds of ensemble, and this is the first recording with solo trombone. These popular pieces showcase the stunning playing of multi-award winning soloist Achilles Liarmakopoulos in a variety of moods, including the famous Oblivion, and Le Grand Tango, a virtuoso show-stopper originally written for cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

Otago Daily Times
The award-winning, Greek-born trombonist (a permanent player with Canadian Brass) serenades and scampers with seductively sweet tones in popular, jerky tango rhythms used by Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992).

MusicWeb International
Piazzolla's music appears in a variety of arrangements, but this is claimed as the first recording with a trombone as the constant element. I don't recall having encountered the young Greek trombonist Achille Liarmakopoulos before, but he's a fine exponent of the music, in combination with a variety of other instruments. You probably already know if you like Piazzolla's music - and it's very hard to dislike. If you don't, this is as good a way as any to get to know it...
