A promise is a promise even if it's a long time coming
For those of you who requested this piece... and also for those who didn't :mrgreen:
Not my favourite Piazzolla piece, but a challenging one and definitely worth playing

Joy in the music

:bravo: :bravo: :bravo:
Absolutely brilliant performance, Owl.
This really is a strange piece with so many colorful changes in it. It has parts that sound very much as a tango, then completely moves away.
There are so many colors here: bright oranges with splashed of light yellow and almost blinding light, then suddenly plunged into the deepest, darkest, almost a black burgundy of a dark cavern. But still the dance goes on with all of the joyous fun loving colors of the skirt of the dancer, who is doing a very sensuous tango.
All in all this is a piece that can't be ignored.

As always, it's such a pleasure to hear you play. Thank you for sharing your talents and music with us, it is such a wonderful treasure.
:merci:

This is fantastic, dear Owl! :bravo:

It might not be one of your favorites, but it certainly does grab the listener by the collar and swing him around the room a bit! :lol:

It also gives the guitarist a chance to show some of the cool things the guitar can do. 8)

Gary did a great job of recording this one, as always. He captured all of the subtleties of your dynamic range, your sensitivity, and made your guitar sound like a guitar.

I'm SO happy that you are still contributing MP3s. Thank you for this one!

:merci:

Alan
