In 1959, Astor Piazzolla, then living in New York City, assembled a quintet of studio musicians and recorded Take Me Dancing. It was to be the birth of jazz tango. Instead, it was a commercial failure and, in Piazzolla’s mind, an artistic abomination. Piazzolla in Brooklyn, recorded in Buenos Aires by New York based Argentine bassist Pablo Aslan and his Argentine quintet, all fluent in jazz and tango, reclaims the music of Piazzolla’s cursed album.
