‘La Llegada,’ (Epsa Music, 2017) is Adam Tully’s first album as a bandleader. It features eight original compositions which draw from both traditional tango music and the search for a personal voice. The album explores the sonority of tango guitar through Tully’s unconventional trio (with Emilio Teubal, piano and Pedro Giraudo, bass) and pieces for guitar and guitar duo. There are two contributions from contemporary composers: Fernando Otero and Emilio Teubal. Recorded in New York and Buenos Aires, ‘La Llegada’ is one of the latest contributions to tango’s current compositional boom.
‘Tango For Import’ (Panoramic Recordings, 2015) is an album of classic tango arrangements by the New York trio Importango. ‘Tango for Import’ is a play on the old phrase ‘tango for export,’ coined by record labels in an effort to pander to international audiences. Importango’s philosophy is that all audiences deserve the real thing, not a watered-down version. This album to 'imports' the language of tango from Buenos Aires to New York City and beyond.
