Practica del Centro playlist, 3/11/13

Coming at the heels of Daniela and Hernan's 3 day workshop, the Monday night practica wasn't all that weel attended, and there was a lot of chat and beer in addition to dancing. The music felt good but could we get a few more people on the floor?
01. Carlos Di Sarli Alberto Podesta "No esta"  2:45
02. Carlos Di Sarli Alberto Podesta "Al compas del Corazon"  3:19
03. Carlos Di Sarli Alberto Podesta "Junto a tu corazon"  3:00
"How could you start from so good music when there is no one to dance it?"
04. Anibal Troilo Fiorentino "El Cuarteador"  2:49
05. Anibal Troilo Fiorentino "El Bulin De La Calle Ayacucho"  2:30
06. Anibal Troilo Fiorentino "Tinta Roja"  3:02

08. Lomuto, Francisco  "Nostalgias"  3:05
09. Lomuto, Francisco  "Quiero verte una vez mas"  2:29
The next tanda is experimental in nature, and I had to move these fun Rodrigues tangofox tracks down the playlist because the girls didn't yet finish rehashing yesterday's women's technique class:
10. Enrique Rodrigues, Armando Moreno  "2 No Te Apures Por Dios Postillon - Armando Moreno"  2:59

"Gypsy theme #452", the 1915 single cover.
From Wikipedia
Can't resist adding a few visual and audio vignettes. This "Coachman, for goodness sake, don't hurry; there isn't anybody left to go to, there isn't anybody left to love" is the theme of a classic Russian Gypsy Art Nouveau romance, strictly forbidden and at the same time wildly popular and widely alluded to in the USSR... and it makes a very tango kind of allusion itself, in a counterpoint to the poetic and macho image of ever-flying speedy Troika horses (which are mentioned in the opening line of the Castellano letras too).

11. Enrique Rodrigues, Armando Moreno "Noches de hungria"  2:57
12. Enrique Rodrigues, Armando Moreno "La hija de la japonesita-Armando Moreno-1941(Fox trot)" 2002 2:30

I spent the previous week learning about BsAs ca. 1960, including Ben Molar aka Moses Smolarchik Brenner, 98 years old now, who was about to give us El Dia del Tango, December 11, to honor both Gardel and Calo... so I ended up listening to Calo and again to Calo:

Alas Brian already left so I couldn't get his opinion on evenness of the milonga tempos... as you can imagine, the third tune is what it's all for:

Love "Lejos de Ti" (I have a separate blog entry on that) ... Biagi y Ibanez got one more super fast vals but three just could be too much? So I added an instrumental and a little bit slower.

55. Francisco Canaro - Roberto Maida "Ojos negros que fascinan" 1935 2:51
"Dark Eyes" is another eternal Russian Gypsy classic, based on a French slow waltz of the early XIX c. The letras quite fathfully follow the Russian lyrics, too. And it has been molded into a classic Russian tango too, by Leschenko who shared fames of a Gypsy romance singer and of Tango vocalist. From 1:53 :
56. Francisco Canaro - Roberto Maida "Condena (S.O.S.)" 1937-11-08 2:39
