Specializing in the music of the late Argentine composer, Astor Piazzolla, as well as original nuevo tango compositions, the Austin Piazzolla Quintet, founded in 2009 by violinist James Anderson, has captivated audiences with their intense live performances that feature unique arrangements of Piazzolla's compositions, innovative original works, and fiery improvisation. The Austin Chronicle wrote, "Nuevo Tango from this quintet runs a blood red ... sublime." The group has released three albums, including their 2015 self-titled CD, recorded by Grammy nominated engineer, Charlie Kramsky, and they have toured and performed in some of the finest listening rooms, jazz clubs, and performance halls in the nation. Last at Outpost in March of 2016, the quintet returns for another memorable evening. Along with Anderson on violin, the quintet features Jonathan Geer, piano; Mike Maddux, accordion, bandoneon; Tony Rogers, cello; and Pat Harris, bass.
