The title is ironic but underscores the simple truth that the essential elements of both tango and jazz are passion and swing. It is natural therefore that tango meets jazz. Pablo Ziegler performed with the Astor Piazzola Quintet for eleven years, touring the world and making many acclaimed albums. Ettore Stratta and Pat Philips - the producers of this album - met Pablo at a session in Buenos Aires. Later they decided to place Pablo at the center of a TangoJazz project - putting on concerts where the he could play with America's top jazz musicians. Musicians such as Stefon Harris, one of the US's finest vibraphone players and a founding member of The Classical Jazz Quartet. That concert in New York was recorded for Kind of Blue.
A unique evening of passion, fire and Swing.
