Blues Tango

Blues Tango by Pablo Montanelli is a masterful blend of tango and blues, offering a unique and soulful listening experience. Montanelli, an accomplished pianist and composer, brings his deep understanding of these genres to the forefront, creating a rich tapestry of sound that captivates from the first note to the last.

The album opens with Soñé Tu Amor, a tender and evocative piece that sets the tone for the emotional journey ahead. Más que Versos follows, weaving intricate melodies. Pursuit of Love and La Despedida continue to showcase Montanelli’s ability to blend romantic and melancholic themes seamlessly.

One of the standout tracks, Cha Cha Cha Blues, infuses the rhythmic elements of cha-cha with the deep expressiveness of blues, creating a lively yet soulful piece. Gricel and Un Tango a Ceriana pay homage to traditional tango while incorporating modern influences, highlighting Montanelli’s innovative approach.

Vida Mía and Buscándote explore themes of longing and devotion, with Montanelli’s piano performances bringing a profound depth to each track. Hotel Venezia and Calavera No Chilla offer a vibrant mix of styles, reflecting the diverse influences that inspire Montanelli’s work.

The album closes with the iconic Libertango, a powerful rendition that breathes new life into this classic piece. Throughout Blues Tango, Montanelli draws inspiration from musical greats such as Osvaldo Fresedo, Horacio Salgán, Oscar Peterson, and Keith Jarrett, infusing his compositions with elements of jazz, blues, and tango nuevo.

Influenced by the likes of Osvaldo Fresedo and Dizzy Gillespie, Montanelli’s work stands out for its emotional depth and technical brilliance. This album is not just a collection of songs but a heartfelt narrative that invites listeners to experience the full spectrum of human emotion through the lens of tango and blues.
