Tanda of the Week 34 / 2011 - Juan D'Arienzo

1. Juan D'Arienzo - "Lorenzo" 1936
2. Juan D'Arienzo - "Union Civica" 1938
3. Juan D'Arienzo - "Lelia" 1938
4. Juan D'Arienzo - "Retintín" 1936
So far there's been quite a lof of tandas from D'Arienzo on my blog and there's a good reason for it as there are so many great classic recordings from the maestro and his orchestra. I could go many ways with just the instrumentals from the 30's but the opening track of this tanda "Lorenzo" got me hooked with the playful beginning and the amazing violin so I went with the mid-uptempo cheerfulness all the way. This tanda will leave you in a good mood for sure! Enjoy!

1. Carlos Di Sarli / Alberto Podestá - "Tú el cielo y tú" 1944

What better way to celebrate than with a tanda of absolute classics! Here's some more Podestá for comparison to last weeks tanda this time with Carlos Di Sarli.

Tanda of the Week 31 / 2011 -
Pedro Laurenz con Alberto Podestá

Listen to the tanda - Spotify

1. Pedro Laurenz / Alberto Podestá - "Recien" 1943-09-22
2. Pedro Laurenz / Alberto Podestá - "Como el hornero" 1944-01-14
3. Pedro Laurenz / Alberto Podestá - "Veinticuatro de Agosto" 1943-04-16
4. Pedro Laurenz / Alberto Podestá - "Nunca tuvo novio" 1943-04-16

This is not the tanda that I most often play from Laurenz and Podestá but I like it a lot nevertheless. I had the tracks in reversed order first to have a more smooth romantic start but later changed it to start with the more familiar, although darker, "Recien" and then finish with "Nunca tuvo novio". Pure perfection from Alberto Podestá in all of the songs.

Tanda of the Week 30 / 2011 -
Ricardo Pedevilla

Ricardo Pedevilla, Daniel Alvarez & Nicolás Pepe 1935

1. Ricardo Pedevilla - "El pollo ricardo"
2. Ricardo Pedevilla - "El caburé"
3. Ricardo Pedevilla - "Siete palabras"

4. Ricardo Pedevilla - "El amanacer" 1950 - Spotify

I sometimes like to play this tanda from Ricardo Pedevilla as an alternative to Di Sarli instrumentals. The songs are very similar but still very different. Unfortunately only the amazing "El Amanacer" is available on Spotify.
