Subject: [Tango-L] help grouping

Hi Folks,

I am not familiar at all with different orchestras. I need some help with existing schema (models) that would facilitate my understanding of rhythm, mood, style, etc... Even the categories are open to interpretation. PLEASE I do not want this to be a thread of wrong or right... I just want to know if dancers out there have any particular way to group musical pieces or orchestras together. Just starting to think about this makes me confused. I think this could be a very positive online community project that would inform dancers and non-dancers alike. Any help with that would be greatly appreciated. thank you, Amaury

Amaury,

Stephen Brown does a very good job of grouping orchestras by style on
his web site:

http://www.tejastango.com/tango_music.html

This web site was my guide when I first starting DJing.

I would very much agree with Ron about Steve Brown's site. Having danced to
his DJing several times at memorable events, in my experience his insight
comes through in his live DJing. When three of us first tried to get
started DJing, we all printed out copies of his relevant web pages when we
had our meetings.

I would add Keith Elshaw's vast labor of tango love at www.totango.net,
where his extensive background in audio engineering adds a lot to many of
his investigations and selections.

All the best,
