The myspace page is a fan page, as Piazzolla has been dead for some time now (little over 10 years).  However, his music is quite worth a listen.  A random find I burned from the library CD collection about 4 years back that I'm only now starting to appreciate.  There's a song called Riverado that if you can find online, I highly recommend.

A friend recently hooked me up with Tango: Zero Hour.  It's great stuff.  I'm sure he'd have moe to say about it than I if he weren't totally absorbed in Elder Scrolls Oblivion right now.

HELL. YES.  Hell yes, hell yes, hell yes.  I do love the Piazzolla; "Adios Nonino" has to be a good start for anybody wanting to listen to more of his stuff.

There was a documentary on his life on TV over here a while back (I think on BBC4 or Artsworld....one of the artier digital channels, either which way); about his classical studies, his sometimes turbulent relationship with his dad and then with his son...quite a character.  This is a good site to find out more about him.

Tango: Zero Hour is totally awesome, I think I'm going to listen to it right now.
