Argentinian bandoneonist, composer and arranger Marcelo Nisinman is one of the most remarkable musicians active in the field of post-Piazzolla Buenos Aires tango. Without adhering too closely to Piazzolla or falling in with the vintage trappings of revivalist tango, Nisinman has forged his own personal, compelling path, in a direction that challenges tradition, embraces modernism, and establishes an intelligent link between Argentinian tango and a particularly European form of the genre, a reflection of the duality of Nisinman's roots and the cultural sphere of his adopted home. A reflection, as well, of his inspired choice of colleagues. Joining him in the Nisinman Trio are Europeans Alberto Mesirca on classical and electric guitars and Winfried Holzenkamp on bass and ukulele. Holzenkamp went to Buenos Aires to study tango bass with Horacio Cabarcos and He'ctor Console, while the Italian-born Mesirca is a classical guitarist by training and in style, but with a knowledge of Sephardic music and of the Baroque lute and guitar repertoire. The Baroque era is represented on this album, in fact, in two non-tango arrangements: Bach's Adagio and 17th-century organist-composer Dietrich Buxtehude's Prelude in D. While respecting the original contrapuntal wealth of these pieces, Nisinman takes them into very different tonal territory. A formidable and innovative composer in the genre, his relationship with the tango tradition is mediated by an acute sense of the contemporary, as is evidenced by the three originals on the album. But Nisinman's approach to arranging is aptly defined by the German term Bearbeitung, implying recomposition and reinvention of the various musical parameters involved. His own compositions and those of the two giants of the Baroque stand in evocative relief against forward-thinking arrangements of tango standards, with recognizable elements displaced, slowed, and restarted in new zones on the palette of instrumental color.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com

It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.
