About the album
Bandoneon and drums? The duo instrumentation seems, on paper, arrestingly unorthodox. But then Dino Saluzzi is a one-of-a-kind bandoneonist, and Jon Christensen no conventional drummer, either. They can make the unorthodox seem natural.
Perhaps the most spontaneously-conceived of all Saluzzi’s albums, on “Senderos”, you can almost hear the artists thinking aloud as they shape the music in the moment. Ten of the album’s pieces are duets. Some are Dino’s songs, some are freely improvised. There are also four solo bandoneon pieces that seem to melt with nostalgia for the simple life which Saluzzi, 70 this year, left behind so long ago in the village of Campo Santo.
