Album Notes
Uruguay born New York based bandoneonist Raúl Jaurena has become the world's premiere performer on his instrument, acknowledged for his 2007 Latin Grammy Award winning Soundbrush recording Te Amo Tango (SR 1009), which featured many of his own innovative New Tango compositions. The followup to that universally lauded effort, Pasion por La Vida (SR 1015), found Jaurena joining forces with Roger Davidson, performing intoxicating duets on eighteen of the pianist’s original new tango compositions. On his newest release Fuerza Milonguera (named for the Davidson composition that opened their duo date) Jaurena unveils his Tango Orchestra to explore the roots of the music he has been advancing for years, with distinctive interpretations of new and old compositions in the classic tango style.

In his informative notes to Fuerza Milonguera writer Fernando Gonzalez quotes Raúl Jaurena asserting that “Tango, like any other music, needs constant renewal, new blood – but this must happen without forgetting the rules, the codes that make the music what it is … so the idea behind this recording was to go back to the roots – but updated by the experiences I’ve had, and the music and the sounds I’ve heard.” On the date Jaurena shines a spotlight on the tango style of his native Uruguay - one that reflects the subtle differences between that country and its neighbor Argentina, where the genre was born. The music here has a gentler ensemble sound, while nodding to the traditional Afro-Uruguayan candombe style that still thrives in Montevideo, where the disc was recorded with some of that city’s largely unsung master musicians. The sound, while modeled after the classic tango dance orchestras of the ‘50s, is an updated one -- fresh and exciting, while passionately rooted -- that reaffirms Jaurena’s role as the preeminent keeper of the flame that continues to ignite tango today.
