Tango in the Square featuing Tango No. 9
Tango Number 9 is an all-star Bay Area ensemble (members have played with The Residents, Tom Waits, Club Foot Orchestra, Eric McFadden, Extra Action Marching Band…) united in a love for a famously elusive non- native art form. Since 1998, the group has delved deeply into the world of tango, playing countless concerts and milongas, collaborating with many of the top dancers on the west coast, and recording two critically acclaimed albums — the all-Piazzolla All Them Cats in Recoleta (lauded by JazzIz Magazine as one of the best modern tango CDs of 2002) and 2006’s exploration of early tango, Radio Valencia. The quartet is Joshua Raoul Brody on piano, Isabel Douglass on accordion & bandoneon, Greg Stephens on trombone and bandleader Catharine Clune on violin.
