Label: World Village
Call Fernando Otero a tango artist at your peril -- even if he claims the title himself. This aptly named record hews to no convention, tango or otherwise. Otero's piano is a voluble and harried instrument that careens into 20th century atonality, unconventional classical compositions and avant-garde jazz, rounding the bases as if it can't wait to try the next thing. At times the results are breathtaking, but if you're not paying rapt attention, the album can fade into a background irritant. If you're pressed for time, listen to the first half for the most rewarding listen.
