Kwintet Tanguillo

Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) changed the face of music, being an influential composer, bandoneon virtuoso, and the creator of tango Nuevo. His pieces exude the rhythm of tango, the flourishing virtuosity of French romanticism, and elements of jazz and Baroque. + Composer and teacher Adam Szmerek (b. 1948) began by composing literary song, and has received multiple awards for his settings of poetic texts. + Accordionist Elwira Sliwkiwiecz-Cisak leads this group of musicians. A graduate of the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, she is a winner of the fourth prize at the All-Polish Accordion Competition 1985.

Débora Russ Ensemble

With this album, Aeon pursues the adventure initiated two years ago with singer Débora Russ, who interprets some of her own songs for the occasion, set to music and arranged by Mauricio Angarita, as well as songs by Piazzolla and Leonardo Sánchez. When she revisits the works of the famous Argentine composer with passion and emotion, Débora Russ convinces us of their importance and of the profound resonance they find with us more than ten years after his demise. Moments of passionate lyricism alternate with romantic episodes and rhythmic effects brimming with energy, without individual and collective expression ever betraying the spirit of tango nuevo. An artist with a quite unique style!

Boyd Meets Girl (Rupert Boyd and Laura Metcalf)

Our debut album is a lovingly curated musical journey, encompassing both our shared perspective on beloved works and relatively unknown repertoire we believe is equally deserving of attention. This album features our own arrangements, including a reduction of Faure's adored Pavane from its orchestral original, and Bach's solo keyboard inventions re imagined on cello and guitar. These are presented alongside contemporary works, including a colorful three movement piece by Bolivian composer Jaime Zenamon, and the debut recording of Arafura Arioso by esteemed Australian composer Ross Edwards. The entire album is designed to highlight the range and of timbral possibilities of this underexplored instrumental pairing. Our collaboration began as a romantic relationship in 2012. We are now happily married and live in New York City.' - Boyd Meets Girl

Morten Gunnar Larsen (piano)

Morten Gunnar Larsen (born 1 October 1955) is a Norwegian jazz musician (piano) and composer, well known for several stride piano recordings and collaborations.

Larsen studied classical piano at Norges Musikkhøgskole (1978). In 1975 he made his debut recording, Classic Rags and Stomps, for which he won Spellemannprisen 1976. He next founded Ophelia Ragtime Orchestra in 1977 and performed with stride pianist Eubie Blake, to whom Larsen composed Memories of Eubie. Larsen worked in New Orleans over longer periods of time, resulting in a tour and the performance One mo' time (1979–81) written by Vernel Bagneris.

Larsens collaboration with Bagneris continued with the performance Jelly Roll!! - the music and the man, dedicatedJelly Roll Morton, and performed at Oslo Jazzfestival 1990. It also had eleven months at Off-Broadway (1994–95) and published as CD (GHB, 1996). This work gave Larsen the OBIE Award 1995. He had earlier received the Buddy Awardog Foreningen norske jazzmusikeres «Årets jazzmusiker» (1992) in his home country Norway. He participated in several recordings in the Magnolia Jazzband (1974–93) and Ytre Suløens Jassensemble up until 1992 and has participated in Norbert Susemihl's Joyful Gumbo (2011–Present).

This recording is a wonderful example of Larsen as a performer, performing works by Piazzolla, Gottschalk, Ernesto Nazareth and many others, creating a toe-tapping disc which will have you listening again and again to this recording.

“This is winning stuff with more similarities to ragtime than you might expect...Morten Gunnar Larsen is a perfect fit for this music. He has an absolute ball playing everything on the disc, and is as deep inside the Creole musical language as anybody can be. It’s an ideal match” MusicWeb International, May 2015

Aquarelle Guitar Quartet

Dances is the second release for Chandos by the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet. The percussive capability of the guitar lends itself extremely well to the rhythmic energies of many dance forms. This collection of dances – appearing in various guises – highlights the versatility of the classical guitar, and the manner in which the instrument can be used to interpret such far-ranging compositions.

The music the Quartet has chosen for this album represents an internationally diverse and chronologically varied spectrum of music. Classics such as Boccherini’s Introduction and Fandango sit alongside original arrangements of the music of Piazzolla and Biréli Lagrène and most notably a new commission from the British composer and saxophonist Andy Scott. Scott’s work, Seven Dances and ‘No Looking Back’, is a collection of inspired movements that show off the guitar’s many attributes in imaginative and dynamic ways, drawing on traits of a variety of contemporary musical styles and genres.
