“The jazz approach of New Tango like that of New Musette has always been obvious for me. Jazz, Musette, Tango all feed on the same ingredients, relating to dance, strong melodies, precise and refined harmonies. The most important thing is the style (according to Astor Piazzolla). In the presence of Sébastien Giniaux (guitar and cello) and Diego Imbert (double bass), we will approach this New Tango and New Musette repertoire with a jazzistic approach, playing each concert in a totally free way, sometimes away from the score but never from the soul of the composer.” (Richard Galliano)

REVIEW:

This album was recorded at a festival in Cully, a resort on Lake Geneva. Five of the 11 pieces are Galliano compositions and, this being his Tango Band, three are by Astor Piazzolla, his exemplar in that idiom. When Galliano plays Piazzolla the similarity is quite striking.

A good example, the sweetly sad Chiquilin De Bachin, is a little masterpiece in this respect. It also reveals the double talents of Sébastien Giniaux, the trio’s superb guitarist, who plays an eloquent cello here. In contrast, the trio, including bassist Diego Imbert, presents seven-and-a-half minutes of sheer virtuosity with Galliano’s jazz-tinted Waltz for Nicky. The evening ends on a touchingly intimate note, the audience quietly joining in Serge Gainsbourg’s La Javanaise, with Galliano acting as their gentle accompanist.
