About this Album

Building on the success of its first Nonesuch outing, The Tango Project widens its scope on its second album by including both original compositions and works by composers like Kurt Weill and Cole Porter. The New York Times described the results as “ravishing,” noting that “the variety of styles skillfully reflected here is wide.”
