Hi,

I've been working on the Histoire Du Tango by Piazzolla for a little while now, I'm performing it on Soprano Sax with piano accompaniment. Night-Club 1960 is a hot fave along with Cafe 1930... I'm hoping to get these ready for our next concert (www.myspace.com/rapsodiexarte)

The thing is, in Night-Club 1960.. when it gets to bar 54 - I'm not sure of the etiquette!.. there is rhythmic notation marked 'T T TKTK' etc. underneath. I know how this works on the flute but I am having problems translating this to the sax whilst making it sound audible over the piano. Does anyone here know of what exactly should happen in this section??

Thanks

Andy

It's really up to interpretation. In the sax quartet-made version of the piece it turned into that rhythm in the soprano/tenor but they were half a step away from each other. I believe when Nobuya Sugawa recorded this he just plays a D and slap-tongues the accents and regularly tongues the other or something like that. Maybe you can even find an interesting multi-phonic that works. I think this is what sax quartets do in the Four for Tango arrangement.
