Tango: Zero Hour/Nuevo Tango: Hora Zero - Astor Piazzolla and The New Tango Quintet (1986)

This is pretty much the essence of cool. Mysterious and suggestive. These songs incorporate classical, jazz, and tango elements to create something truly unique. The arrangements are superb, where Piazzolla orchestrates violins, accordion, piano and other instruments to blend into a sparse and noirish atmosphere. The instruments sound well separated, with each voice stealing their moments of virtuosity and unbounded emotion from the whole. It’s smooth, fluid, and occasionally very pretty, particularly in the case of the closer Mumuki.
