En esta tarde gris (1941)
El bulín de la calle Ayacucho (1941)
Te aconsejo que me olvides (1941)
El Gordo Picucho, Aníbal Troilo, is one of the giants of tango. In later years, his orchestra would accompany great singers like Edmundo Rivero and Roberto “El polaco” Goyeneche. He also collaborated with lyricist Homero Manzi on several classic tangos.
From 1938 to 1944, Astor Piazzolla played bandoneón for Troilo, and also wrote a few of the most innovative and unusual arrangements ever recorded by a Golden Age dance orchestra.
Among dancers, his most beloved recordings are his early 1940s collaborations with singer Francisco Fiorentino. Their songs cover a range of styles, from romantic to rhythmic. This tanda starts at romantic and speeds up near the end, culminating with the powerful “Te aconsejo que me olvides.”
