October 26th, 1945

Calendario Milonguero

Date in which Juan D’Arienzo records a tango porteño like few others: LEGUISAMO SOLO. It is a piece dedicated to Ireneo Leguisamo (1903-1987) a jokey born in Montevideo who triumphed in Buenos Aires. Carlos Gardel, a friend of the horseman and a fan of horse races, recorded it in 1925. However D’Arienzo was the only one who brought it to the feet, but the piece rarely played at milongas.
