        I'm a fan of Piazolla, but I'm disappointed buying this book. The arrangements are badly done. The arranger has transposed the original compositions without thinking about the comfort of the musician: there are too many flats and scharps in the pieces to play.(some have 6 - why didn't he used other keys?)I don't understand this because I have bought other books from this arranger and those are better done. "Ausencias" and "vuelvo al sur" are the best pieces to play.

        I would thoroughly recommend Piazzolla, book to add to your repertoire of Grade 5-6 pieces, especially if you enjoy playing along with an accompanying disc. The alto sax is an ideal instrument to bring out the authentic Tango style. If like me, following the piano part helps maintain timing after several bars sax rest, the cd contains high quality pdf's of the piano parts
