The wonderful Trio de Curda performs a program of Tango and Latin music, built around Astor Piazzolla’s monumental “Libertango”, which gives this album its name.

Recorded “off-the-floor” on 1/4″ Analog Tape on a Nagra IV-S Tape Recorder in CCIR eq curve, with no overdubs and no editing. This is a wonderful, spontaneous, direct recording by René Laflamme at L’Église St-Jean Baptiste in Montreal on October 28, 2019. Only one Neumann Stereo Tube Microphone (SM69) was used in the Pure Blumlein microphone technique.

The return of the most delicate, but most considered, kind of audio format for true audiophiles. The most dubious audiophiles know the truth about reel-to-reel tape. The truth is that it just sounds better than vinyl. The ultimate reel-to-reel tape is the latest retro-trend for audiophiles, it has a greater dynamic range than vinyl, is capable of producing extraordinary sound for the treble and bass and there is less signal processing which is the enemy of a hi-fi extraordinaire. Nothing sounds better than music on audio reel-to-reel tape.

José Ariel Palacio was born in Frías - Santiago del Estero, Argentina. He started learning piano at the conservatoire when he was 7, learning classical music as well as tango. José picked up the accordion later on and started joining various musical projects, including a theatrical music band, Latin fusion bands, and traditional tango bands. He frequently tours and plays across the American continent and in Europe, with different international artists. His passion is to share his music exploring different musical genres without losing his Latino and tango roots.

Juliette Malgrange - Juliette Malgrange has been playing the cello since the age of eight. Trained in classical technique at the Maurice Ravel Conservatory in Paris, she was always interested in exploring a variety of musical styles and improvisation. For several years now Juliette has been a part of the Montreal music scene playing on the streets and in various venues with different ensembles, among others: Swingaro (gypsy jazz), Opa Lai (Eastern European Music), Grre en Famille (festive French chanson), Trio de Curda (tango). She is currently doing a Licentiate of Music in Jazz Performance at McGill University.

Lucas Maxit was born in Ramallo, Argentina. He started playing double bass when he was 15, and studied classical technique at the National University of Rosario in Argentina. He also attended the Rosario School of Tango, and played with its orchestra in 2012-2013. Lucas joined the band Pasaje Noruega and other tango bands. At the same time, he was a member of carnaval choirs, like Murga Mal Ejamplo Carnaval, where he also did vocal arranging and wrote lyrics. In 2018 Lucas moved to Montreal and is evolving since then within various musical styles, integrating bands like Swingaro (gypsy jazz), Trio de Curda (tango), and other projects encompassing swing, Brazilian jazz, and folk music.
