"ASTOR PIAZZOLLA - LIBERTAD - L'ETONNANT VOYAGE D'UN HOMME LIBRE" by Sébastien Authemayou & Marielle Gars (Editions Parole, 2020)
In honor of the centenary of his birth, this first-ever French-language biography + CD celebrates the life and work of Astor Piazzola, the Argentinian-born New Yorker who revolutionized tango by infusing elements of jazz and classicial music.
Initially shunned by traditionalists, he was eventually revered globally as a "genre-bending genius who had done for the tango something like what Picasso did for modern art." (L.A. Times)
The authors, Sébastien Authemayou & Marielle Gars, are internationally renowned tango musicians known as the group Duo Intermezzo. Their 528-page opus includes a biography that reads like a novel, rare and previously unpublished photographs and a 75-minute CD contains sound archives as well as Duo Intermezzo original tracks.
Available for a limited time for $49.99 thanks to generous support from the publisher (normally $65.99!).
