Warren Nicholson and Mark Whale Play Piazzolla

Mark Whale violin, and Warren Nicholson guitar, play Bordel 1900, from L’Histoire du Tango by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla (1921–1992), recorded January 30th, 2017 at Toronto Canada. Audio/Vid by the amazing Canadian guitarist/producer Drew Henderson. This comes via Warren Nicholson’s YouTube Channel. Great groove and playing by both musicians. The period via Wiki: “In the 1980s Piazzolla was wealthy enough, for the first time, to become relatively autonomous artistically, and wrote some of his most ambitious multi-movement works. These included Tango Suite for the virtuoso guitar duo Sergio and Odair Assad; Histoire du Tango, where a flutist and guitarist tell the history of tango in four chunks of music styled at thirty-year intervals; and La Camorra, a suite in three ten-minute movements, inspired by the Neapolitan crime family and exploring symphonic concepts of large-scale form, thematic development, contrasts of texture and massive accumulations of ensemble sound.”
