''Vigor Tanguero'' won the Latin Grammy Award as ''Best Tango'' CD for 2018!

''Vigor Tanguero'' is the first tango CD for bassist, bandleader, and composer Pedro Giraudo. After releasing five remarkable albums performed by various formats of jazz ensembles, his gaze was captured by the glint of tango.

Perhaps it was only matter of time, as Giraudo hails from the birthplace of tango, Argentina, and so this album is a homecoming of sorts. A man revisiting the music of his country and culture, contributing not something homespun but tantalizing and suggestive. ''I enjoyed every second of the process'', said Giraudo, who seems capable of scaling any musical summit. He wrote these pieces for the brilliant quartet of Nick Danielson (violin), Rodolfo Zanetti (bandoneón), Emilio Teubal (piano), and himself (bass). And by so doing, he realized that his works were in fact rooted in the best of the tango tradition. Each selection can be categorized and described according to one of three tango rhythms: milongas, valses, and tangos. Of course, there are some exceptions, but throughout you'll hear Giraudo tinkering and experimenting with the fundamental tango rhythmic cells - pushing, pulling, even suspending the syncopated feel as he engineers a new aesthetic or archetype for this music that he loves. ''I tried to express many emotions on this album: happiness, joy, passion, sadness, intimacy, vulnerability, and playfulness'', he says. No matter what this album makes you feel, it will be borne out of authenticity, as Giraudo's genuine spirit shines through each note, beat, and breath. The first piece Vorágine means Whirlwind in English, but it's not an exact translation, as Giraudo has struggled to find a word that conveys the chaos and confusion that afflict those living in New York. ''This is my anthem for the city'', he says. He constructed the piece with a straightforward ABA form, with an almost identical introduction and coda.
