This week's tanda is spirited set by Juan d'Arienzo with Alberto Echagüe singing. "El Rey del compás" (The Rhythm King), as D'Arienzo was known, worked with many great singers. But, to me, Alberto Echagúe's canyengue style of singing was a perfect match for the rhythmic nature of D'Arienzo's orchestra. They recorded 27 records in the 1930's and "Trago Amargo," was the last before Echagüe left D'Arienzo's orchestra. He did return to D'Arienzo twice more, from 1944 to 1957 and 1968 to 1975.

This week's tanda is a classic set by Anibal Troilo with Francisco Fiorentino singing. You don't get much more tango than this. Troilo and Fiorentino created some of the greatest tango music of all time. In these songs, Troilo is at the top of his game with some of the best musicians around, including Orlando Goñi on piano and Astor Piazzolla, along with Troilo, on bandoneon.
