A Young Piazzolla

There are currently more than 50 Piazzolla videos on YouTube which feature Piazzolla either as a musician or in an interview situation. There was an additional video added this week which I believe predates all the others. It is a video clip from a movie titled El Tango en el Cine which was released in 1980. In addition to Piazzolla, you will see two members of one his early quintets: Antonio Agri and Oscar López Ruiz. My guess is that the video dates to the early 1960's but even Oscar López Ruiz himself says in the forum, "Don't ask about the date or even where or when this video was made because I haven't got the faintest idea."

Regardless, it is a priceless view of the man. Thanks to TangoVia for posting the video.
