"one of the most exciting and immersive tango recordings"

"Omar Massa, born in Buenos Aires in 1981, has been called the successor of Astor Piazzolla. He lives up to this claim with his new CD, on which he and his trio play works by Piazzolla Ginastera as well as, most remarkably, his own compositions, with which he consistently develops Tango Nuevo. The music becomes even more powerful with him, even more expressive between melancholy and anger, now and then, as in the Kageliana, also more modern. The Massa Trio plays their own pieces as well as those of Piazzolla with gripping intensity, with glowing colors and passionate rhythms. Consequently, I rank this outstandingly recorded SACD as one of the most exciting and immersive tango recordings in my collection."
