Album Notes
In 2009, UNESCO granted Tango dance and music protected cultural status recognizing that one of the world’s most vital cultural heritages was in danger of disappearing forever. In response to the need for funding to preserve the art and music of tango, Los Angeles-based LMS Records has pledged to donate 100% of the proceeds from sales of the inspired and passionate tango track, “Mercado Buenos Aires” by the Pepe Motta Quartet from the recently released LMS Records tango collection, “Tango Apasionado” to the non-profit organization TangoVia, Buenos Aires to benefit The Tango Digital Archive.

THE TANGO DIGITAL ARCHIVE is an ambitious and unprecedented initiative to digitize the cultural patrimony of tango in its entirety, rescuing rare collections and guaranteeing the preservation of the history of tango in recordings, photographic and graphic materials before they are lost forever.
Of the 100,000 analog recordings made, only 20% is available on CD-much of the remaining 80% is in danger on fragile records and tapes in private collections. Records break. Tapes get moldy. 3000 tango recordings are already lost forever. Help us save this amazing music which UNESCO recently declared "an intangible cultural heritage of humanity." Once it´s gone, it´s gone.

Pepe Motta Quartet

José Luis Motta o “Pepe”, como lo llaman todos los que lo conocen bien, nació en Pergamino, Buenos Aires, Argentina y nunca pensó en otra cosa más que en ser músico y más específicamente, pianista. En estos días, sigue igual, enfocado en su mundo musical, reuniendo premios y críticas entusiastas, y continúa expandiendo su reputación como uno de los más finos pianistas, arregladores/conductores/ productores musicales en el mundo.

Comenzó su carrera profesional tocando tangos a la edad de 14 años, en Argentina.

Hoy su experiencia musical y sus antecedentes han hecho que, a menudo, sea requerido como asesor por radios, televisión, películas y teatro, a nivel internacional.

Ha sido miembro de la Sociedad Argentina de Autores y Compositores, (S.A.D.A.I.C.), desde 1959; pianista acompañante en las clases de Técnica del Movimiento, en la Escuela de Teatro, dependiente del Ministerio de Educación y ha dado charlas sobre música en los Centros de Educación para Adultos, en Argentina.

Como compositor, arreglador y ejecutante, su música lleva su sello y es reconocida internacionalmente desde Argentina, hasta Estados Unidos y más allá, hasta lugares como España, Australia y Singapur.

Ganó, entre otros, dos premios Emmy, por la música del "Desfile de las Rosas", evento especial en vivo, para la cadena de televisión Univisión, en Estados Unidos, en los años 2000 y 2001. Como compositor, arreglador y productor recibió diferentes reconocimientos y premios, como discos de platino y de oro; por dos años consecutivos, estuvo en la lista de los "Productores latinos más famosos" de la revista Billboard; la cadena de televisión Univision lo nombró "Mejor Productor del Año"; recibió el premio de BMI "Canción más popular".

Si agregamos a esto sus muchos éxitos como productor musical comprenderemos porqué somos tan afortunados de tener a Pepe con nosotros en Argentina.

great music & great cause
For those in the know - sadly the tango is in real danger of being lost forever.... precious little of what is out there has been converted to digital formats and exists in a very fragile state -- wax records, personal photos, handwritten scores. One house fire and much could be lost. This is a great song and the proceeds benefit TangoVia, Buenos Aires & The Digital Tango Archive.
