    This one is very good. The way I can tell is that is really inspires me to go to the piano at this very moment. Thank God I can use earphones at 2:48 AM and will not distrube my mother.

    Nice writing, Darwin. A really fine tango that can be
    totally enjoyed with only one instrument. I can imagine
    how this could be further enhanced with a few combo
    instruments and a good rhythm section.

    Very well done, Darwin.

    Hi Darwin. "Last Tango" is translated more apropiately like "Último Tango", at least you are refering to it like a "tango from the past". In that case, "Tango del pasado" would be the name.

    Hi marce,

    I appreciate the Spanish lesson, as my Spanish is quite poor. From this side of the fence, "Último Tango" sounds a little too much like "the ultimate tango", which this certainly isn't. However, "Tango del Pasado" has a nice ring to it and fits my musical intentions as well. Gracias!

    Another Darwin Special !

    Thanks for putting this one up for us, Darwin. I think the tango really suits solo piano (see also Dustin O'Halloran's first CD, whose name eludes me...).

    By the way, what's a Brazilian tango ?? My ochos are in a twist just trying to work that one out.

    Thanks again !

    Hi Viv,

    By the way, what's a Brazilian tango ?? My ochos are in a twist just trying to work that one out.
    I pondered that, too, for awhile. Of course, the tango is Argentine in origin, but many South American countries have their own local version. Brazil, Uruguay, and Cuba immediately come to mind. Being gringo, I'm certainly no expert, so my take-off point on this are the eighty+ tangos of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, which I highly recommend to anyone who has any interest in the genre. To my mind, the Brazalian tango is roughly the Argentine tango blended with elements of Brazalian music, the most obvious being the samba. That's what I tried to do in this composition (but mostly I just want to get people dancing ).
