Tanda of the Week 33 / 2013 - Carlos Di Sarli (instrumentals)

1. Carlos Di Sarli - "Shusheta | El aristócrata" 1940 - TangoTunes
2. Carlos Di Sarli - "Nobleza de arrabal" 1940 - TangoTunes
3. Carlos Di Sarli - "Catamarca" 1940 - TangoTunes
4. Carlos Di Sarli - "Racing Club" 1940 - TangoTunes orchestra of Carlos Di Sarli might be better known for the beautiful, melodic and more downtempo recordings of the 1950's, but in 1940 (in between D'Arienzo's rule of pre-1940 and Troilo's recordings from 1941) it was Di Sarli who was recording some of the most funkiest and rhythmical uptempo instrumentals... ever! I like to think that if Osvaldo Pugliese would have recorded already in 1940 it would've sounded pretty much like these songs. Just the bandoneon variaciones are missing.

To purchace these songs in high quality I would recommend the fresh release of Carlos Di Sarli - El Jaguar from

Di Sarli, Carlos - TOTW - Todo - TangoTunes - iTunes Store

  1. Great tanda! Other tracks that fit well with these are El retirao 1939, El incendio 1940, and El estagiario 1941. It would be great to hear more of this kind of Di Sarli in European milongas, and less of his low-energy 1950's tango that so turns off beginners who've been fed it ad nauseum in dance classes.
