TANGO-ORKESTERI UNTO: Yön tummat siivet – Dark Wings of the Night)
Tango Orchestra Unto act as inspiring ambassadors for Finnish tango, performing it at a high level with a dream team of musicians. The variety is pretty much based on the tunes themselves, from well-known old composers to recently composed tangos. This time I’m especially impressed by the slow and lyrical tangos, although sometimes I fear the danceable side of the tango starts to get lost. The arrangements stand out especially in the most famous tune, “Eron hetki on kaunis”, with some cool walking bass and Vivaldi-like violin passages.
