The 4th release for Romero Records will be ‘The Mango Balloon, Volume 2’ by Julian Curwin – the leader of The Tango Saloon developed the project in 2010 between TTS albums. It is essentially a stripped-back chamber version of The Tango Saloon, distilling all of the elements of the larger band down to various smaller configurations, mostly quartets. The sound is lighter and more laid back, with a style which adds lounge, exotica and continental jazz to The Tango Saloon’s tango/western blend.
The album features 6 members from The Tango Saloon, plus special guest vocalist/guitarist Brian Campeau, who aside from his solo work, has recently been touring and recording with The Rescue Ships, a collaboration with Elana Stone.
‘The Mango Balloon, Volume 2’ will be launched November 10th at Venue 505.
