A murky, mesozoic scene-setter, a tango stomp for deviant dinosaurs...ouch.

About the Album

After several years of renewing the tango tradition, Mikael Augustsson has now, along with some of Sweden’s top musicians, created an album that further pushes the boundaries. The project emanates from Astor Piazzolla’s most experimental recordings. It does not breathe so much South American influences as Augustsson’s previous record DynaMike - National Hymns (Hoob Records). In this recording the music has taken a clear step towards a freer sound stage where the joint creation is even more central and direct. Johan Lindström: Guitar & Pedal Steel (Tonbruket); Jesper Nordenström: Organ & Piano (Goran Kajfes Suptropic Arkesta); Andreas Unge: Bass (Best Of Sweden); Jon Fält: Drums (Bobo Stensson); Christopher Cantillo: Drums (Mariam The Believer); Mikael Augustsson: Bandoneón & Accordina.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
