The August Music of the Month Selection
Argentinen bandoneonist-composer-improviser Dino Saluzzi returns to his roots with El Valle de la Infancia. Recorded in Buenos Aires, it features his "family band," with his brother Felix on tenor sax and clarinet, his son José María on guitars and nephew Matías on basses. Also in the ensemble are 7-string guitarist Nicolás "Colacho" Brizuela and drummer Quintino Cinalli. This recording was donated by our friends at ECM Records.
