Considered by Piazzolla to be his best work, 1986’s Tango Zero Hour was the culmination of a career that began in Argentina in the 1930s. Piazzolla started out auspiciously enough working with one of the brightest lights of the classic tango era, singer Carlos Gardél. After Gardél’s tragic death in 1935 (by turning down an offer to tour with the singer at the age of 13, Piazzolla amazingly avoided the plane crash that killed Gardél), Piazzolla went on to perfect his bandoneón playing in various tango bands during the ’40s and ’50s, eventually studying with Nadia Boulanger in Paris.

‘Early Hours’ takes Eleanor McEvoy’s music to new heights. Couched now in a mature jazz/blues context, her melodic and sensitive songs – packed as ever with wry, insightful social observation – benefit from first rate performances. “It would be a tragedy given the exquisite understated magnificence and warmth of these 42 minutes if all Eleanor McEvoy were remembered is ‘fl Woman’s Heart”. Eleanor’s Dido-before-Dido voice and some of the best happy/sad songs she has ever written plus deconstructed classics by Chuck Berry and Bert Jansch, this is her ‘White Ladder’, her ‘Life for Rent’. a triumph. MOJO. Continue reading “Eleanor McEvoy – Early Hours (2004) [Hi-Res SACD Rip]”
