What We Do
Astor Piazzolla A Memoir, with Natalio Gorín (Translated, annotated, and expanded by Fernando González)
Astor Piazzolla, brilliant, iconoclastic tango musician, and composer, has become a national hero in Argentina and a cult figure for classical and jazz lovers worldwide, but only after a lifetime of controversy and struggle. The outspoken, headstrong Piazzolla told his story to a journalist and longtime fan Natalio Gorin in the spring of 1990 in a series of frank interviews.
Excellent notes and annotations by translator Fernando Gonzalez make this the definitive volume of this still-underrated 20th-century giant. -- Stephanie von Buchau, Bay Area Reporter, December 20, 2001
