What is the book about? (see Recommendations) 

Be transported back to the Golden Age of Tango and bring to life the best loved                          tango orchestras.

Who were the orchestra leaders, the musicians, and the singers that gave us this unique sound and what clues did they leave for us to recognise them?

In Getting To Know: Twenty Tango Orchestras you will find it all explained in the four parts of each chapter: the Personal Story, the Signature Sounds, the Singers, and the Musicians.
