ACP #20

This week on All the Cool Parts, we present two different recordings of nuevo tango master Astor Piazzolla.  The first, a live recording from a 1982 concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina of Piazzolla's own quintet - the second, the 1997 recording The Soul of the Tango, featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Also, we present composer and improvisor Gregory Hall on this week's All the Cool Parts Idol.  I talk about improvisation in classical music, and we listen to Greg's classical piano improvisation Woodstock 8_14_10.  You can go to Greg's Soundclick site to hear more of his improvisations HERE, and visit Greg's personal web site HERE.
