About The Tango Project
The Tango Project was formed in 1981 by Michael Sahl and William Schimmel, as a recording project for Nonesuch Records. Since then, violinist Mary Rowell, has joined the group, which continues its live concert and club performances. "The playing is impeccable in accuracy, verve, and dynamics," says SPIN magazine. "The balance is perfect so that each instrument adds its own distinct voice."

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.”
