    First off, one is asking for trouble when calling a three-CD collection a "complete anthology." Simply put: it's nonsense. There are too many artists who were integral to the creation and dissemination of the tango's popularity who are not represented here. The biggest one is Carlos Di Sarli, but there are earlier ones who influenced him as well: Osvaldo Fresedo, Vicente Loduca, Eduardo Arolas, and Roberto Firpo, to name just four. What is here is music that is popular, well-known. Of course, there is plenty of Carlos Gardel here, but in some ways he is another beginning, because he is already so well-known internationally. Yes, for those of us in America, Astor Piazzolla is here as well, and while there is no doubt he should be included, his music is in many ways his own. The creator of the nuevo tango extrapolated the music's pure form and brought it into the later 20th century as nearly classical in its sense of composition and took it away from its dance music origins. The music that is here is quite beautiful, all of it, though the organization of the box itself is rather confusing. To place Gardel next to Osvaldo Pugliese, or Piazzolla next to Anbal Troilo, makes the juxtapositions simply too jarring -- even from the perspective of the listener, let alone the dancer. And this is all on disc one. Disc two is even stranger when it comes to placing Agustin Magaldi's guitar-driven "Se Fue la Pobre Viejita" next to Angel Villoldo's orchestral "El Choco," performed by Juan D'Arienzo. There are many great orchestras here, singer and players alike, music that is to be treasured as well as enjoyed. But the shortcomings and the bizarre organization of the set are still there, wailing into your ears. What we need desperately are some of the great tango scholars out there to get together and compile the box set -- 10, 20, 50, or 100 CDs, it doesn't matter. It is one of those great styles that is transcendental and its appeal has not dissipated in nearly two centuries; it has been discovered and enjoyed all over the world, and interest in the music as well as the dance and its many styles continues to rise in popularity. We need a definitive resource. If one does exist, why not write and let us know. This one, sadly, as handsome as it is, is simply too glaringly incomplete and aesthetically schizophrenic to be taken terribly seriously. ~ Thom Jurek
