Review of Piazzolla: Tango Nuevo CD I like Cotik's recording very much. The Tango Nuevo or 'New Tango' is that which includes the influence of jazz, klezmer, and other European and non-Latin qualities. The driving rhythms of tango are present throughout and it can guide a listener's mood from pensive and intense to emotional and excited, with ease. The violin's tone is precise and clean. The interaction with the piano is similar to the intricacy with which the feet of tango dancers often intertwine. The technical qualities of the recording - which is on the NAXOS label, by the way - are excellent.  Robert W. Plyer READ MORE
