One of the most enjoyable new projects this year for me has been forming and playing with Cafe 852, our new Hong Kong based Argentinian tango, gypsy jazz and gypsy band. We play music from Buenos Aires, Paris, Serbia, Moldova and other exotic places from times long ago and today. I primarily play string bass in this group, occasionally picking up a trumpet or flugel.
We released our first single recently, our version of the beautiful Astor Piazzolla song "Oblivion", which is beautiful and a little bit sad and lonely. Cafe 852's version captures that feeling also but goes in a new direction with the introduction of some new elements- flugelhorn and a little dash of funk. Sorry, we could help ourselves!
