2020 German ACT issue on 180gram vinyl = With a word such as "tango" in the title, aficionados of contemporary jazz could be forgiven for being somewhat wary of this new release from Berlin's ACT label. They should not be at all, yes that particular dance rhythm does form the platform for the great improvised music here, but at no time does it become a hindrance. A brief glance at the line-up of European master musicians on the disc should allay any fears. This dynamic band, plus guests is led by the fifty nine year old German drummer Wolfgang Haffner, who has 35 recordings to his credit and recently topped the poll as the best drummer in his country. This is his third album in the mini "Kind Of" series, the others addressing the subjects of "Cool" and "Spain". It is said that he was "discovered" by trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff when he was 18, since that time, as well as leading his own groups, he has recorded with the likes of The Brecker Brothers, Cassandra Wilson, Al Jarreau and The WDR Big Band among others.
