Story

EL POLLO RICARDO (Luis A. Fernandez)
A playful, old guard tango from the 1930s, which Solla didn’t alter drastically. Instead, he stuck with the 4/4 marcato feel. He also kept the clear down beats but enhanced the musical development, as if he were telling a well-constructed story. His piano solo sings with ardor and Juarena’s bandoneon simmers with elegance. Moreover, their features extend the tune so there is more time to dance!
