In a prior post, I wrote about tangos and their appearance in the repertoire. A few nights ago I had the pleasure of seeing the Iowa Brass Quintet perform live. The performance was a joy to see, and there happened to be a latin style piece on their program. The piece was Killer Tango, a work that was written for the Canadian Brass by Sonny Kompanek and recorded on Canadian Brass Takes Flight. It is an enjoyable piece written in the tango style, I have provided a link to their performance of it for SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

    1. Not positive why it is called Killer Tango other than that it is a tango. The performers are Chris Colettit and Brandon Ridenour on trumpet, Eric Reed on horn, Achilles Liarmakopoulos on trombone, and Chuck Daellenbach on tuba.
