about

This piece is part of a series of tango-jazz compositions. Each one explores a particular quality of the tango. Number 5 is about laying aside feelings of hesitation and being bold (or audacious) in the spirit of tango.

New Tango No. 5 has a number of unusual features. Harmonically, only minor 9th and major 7th chords are used and the chord progression has unusual relationships. Structurally, the piece has a 24-bar form: The A section is 14 bars and the B section is 10 bars. There is quite a bit of shifting time in this piece. Time becomes elastic. Phrases expand and contract. This gives a fluid movement to the music.
