“It was easy to see that … this ensemble has indeed fallen head over heels in love with tango.”

“La dolce vita, Indeed!”

Presenting music old and new, Tango No. 9 embarks on an exciting musical adventure, borrowing from the rich tango tapestry, beginning with Astor Piazzolla and then adding a touch of Kurt Weill, a dash of humor and a pinch of West Coast modernism. “Tango Times, Take Two,” a special East Bay event, promises to be a feast for the ears.

The music that soars in the hands of bay area pianist Joshua Raoul Brody, along with the dulcet sounds of Greg Stephens on trombone, the soaring violin of Catharine Clune, and Zoltan DiBartolo’s sultry tenor, combine to create the unique sound of Tango No. 9, with special guest, Isabel Douglass on accordion.

Tango No. 9, born in the Mission District in 1988, began by exploring where Piazzolla and jazz met. Today, it has become an all-star Bay Area ensemble, recognizable by its unique instrumentation of violin, trombone, piano, and voice. The group delves deeply into the world of tango, recording four critically acclaimed albums, presenting numerous concerts and is constantly exploring different facets of the unique Latin chamber music, the tango.
