The first time I heard Ástor Piazzolla's music was on Five Tango Sensations - an album of Piazzolla's compositions from the Kronos Quartet with Piazzolla playing bandoneón. Five Tango Sensations was an impressive introduction to Piazzolla's music and I have no idea why it took more than a decade to find Tango: Zero Hour - my loss! Tango: Zero hour is a suberb collection of compositions by Piazzola. The performing quintet (which includes Piazzolla) is amazing and the music is incredible expressive. If you have never heard Piazzolla's music this is a great place to start!
