Cuesta Arriba Tango Club

skip to this month's selections

Welcome to our Tango Music Club!

Nothing improves your dancing so much as a good feeling for the special qualities of tango music. The idea of the club was to help you build a library of good tango music, tailored to your own tastes.

The club ran for 8 years, from December 2008 to December 2015, but was forced to close because of the reducing supply of tango CDs, itself a consequence of on-line listening (youtube and spotify) and of course copying.

Aníbal Troilo - La Cumparsita (1943)

Exquisite mid 1940s Troilo, scandalously underplayed in the milonga - surely we're ready for this after more than 20 years tango in Europe?

Juan D'Arienzo - El Rey del Compás (1941-1943)

Juan D'Arienzo - El Rey del Compás (1941-1943)

Sony-BMG 669334

Echagüe's replacement as lead singer in the D'Arienzo orchestra was Héctor Mauré. Before and after Mauré, every singer in the D'Arienzo outfit had to fit themselves to the compás of the orchestra. With Mauré however things were different. He imposed a more equal relationship between orchestra and singer, very much the mould of the 1940s. The fifty numbers they recorded together may not be the most representative of D'Arienzo's output, but they rank amongst the very highest in quality. This music gets more popular every year.

Track list

  1. El rey del compás
  2. Ya lo ves
  3. Dime mi amor
  4. Tierrita
  5. Adiós querida vals
  6. El Olivo

Carlos Di Sarli - Duelo Criollo

Lovely Di Sarli album with 13 late 40s tracks from the baritone Jorge Durán, and 3 from Roberto Rufino. Don't get this if you have the Di Sarli/Durán album on Reliquias.

  15. Con alma y vida milonga
  16. Hoy al recordarla

Canta:



Milongueando con Canaro

Canaro's milongas are some of the most fun! This album surveys his milongas from the 1940s, when his style was a bit lighter, so we don't got his most charming numbers - they are to be found on Bailando tangos, valses y milongas. The flavour of these milongas is more upbeat fun, and it's an enduringly popular cd.

Track list

  1. La puñalada
  2. Flor de arrabal
  3. El chino Pantaleon
  4. Compadre que le va hacer
  5. Vinacho y vinagrillo
  6. El llorón

  8. Los ejes de mi carreta
  9. Pa' que lo oigan
  10. Serafín y Julia Paz
  11. Me gusta bailar milonga
  12. Serenata
  13. Oiga rubia
  14. Como pelea de novios
  15. La rumbita candombe
  16. Se dice de mi
  17. Soy un porteño
  18. San Benito de Palermo
  19. Cuando un viejo se enamora
  20. Candombe criollo
