Organic Piazzolla

Organic Piazzolla - that is what today's video contains. Libertango, as we have seen in this blog, is everywhere from the orchestral concert stage to the late night club in Tokyo. But, some of the best of Libertango comes not from such venues but rather from the heart and fingers of those who just love making music together. I don't know where today's video was made - it looks like it might be in a luthier's shop in Italy - and I don't know who the musicians are. They are not rank amateurs since they are producing an ornamented version of Libertango but they are relaxed and in the company of friends having a good time with Piazzolla's music. The spontaneity and natural/organic quality of the music is refreshing in these days of so much over-produced commercial music.

My thanks to the musicians for sharing their good times with us.
