The result was a fascinating collaboration called TANGO, TAP, AND FIRE."
They played with enormous passion, performing three pieces by Suárez Paz's mentor, Astor Piazzolla..."
Suárez Paz sang the beautiful ballad, "El Dia Que Me Quieras" and was joined by his wife, Olga Suárez Paz, in a short tango dance demonstration. Paz's singing voice is gorgeous, so his song was a special treat that brought loud cheers from the audience."
I have seen Glover perform many times, but I don't believe I have ever seen more virtuosic dancing than he showed us at 54 Below. Glover is to the hoofer what Picasso is to the painter or what Pavarotti is to the opera singer."

Leonardo Suarez Paz: EL NUEVO TANGO
redefines the concept of contemporary music, song and dance of Buenos Aires, as a complex, evolving genre - deeply rooted in tradition but with one foot in the next century,
a "magnificent performance" - All About Jazz
"Leonardo Suarez Paz is surely now the torchbearer of Argentine Tango and the legacy of its greatest composer, Astor Piazzolla."
"In Leonardo's hands, it merges deftly with jazz. Piazzolla's "Calambre" is an excellent example of this—at times, it is as if Stuff Smith (the father) duets with Jean-Luc Ponty (the son)."
"a magnificent performance filled with all the virtues of tango—"Masters of Tango Violin," indeed."
All About Jazz, Escualo Review
“This is an album in which love triumphs over the ravages of time, where phrasing flourishes beyond technique and the dense humidity of the La Plata River and perfume of jacaranda and silk floss trees prevail over the exhaust pipes of city buses. It unites and continues a tradition that constantly advances, gliding towards an unpredictable future."
