Calendario Milonguero

ENRIQUE ALESSIO dies. Bandoneonist, composer and conductor. His peak he reached as an instrumentalist. He was a member of Pugliese’s orchestra since its debut (1939) and he remained there for five years. In 1951 he joined D’Arienzo’s group where he remained for seven years. Here, in the fourth tango he recorded with Pugliese, is clearly audible his virtuosity.

♫ MALA JUNTA. Osvaldo Pugliese (1943)
