Adam Tully Trio
The Adam Tully Trio draws on the tradition of Argentine tango guitarists and their groups. The style developed in Buenos Aires in the early 20th century as an accompaniment for singers, taking a parallel path to the instrumental orquestas típicas, small string-piano-and-bandoneon ensembles.
Like the folkloric music of the cuyo region, tango guitar developed into trios, quartets, and quintets that play virtuosic instrumental music. Traditionally the lead guitar is usually supported by one or more rhythm and harmonizing guitars. In Adam’s trio the support comes from the piano and bass, each of which (like the guitar) has a distinct tradition and set of techniques in tango music. The trio’s repertoire includes original compositions, original arrangements of standard tango repertoire, and adaptations from the ‘tango art music’ repertoire of innovators like Atilio Stampone and Horacio Salgán.
The trio is:
Adam Tully, guitar
Pedro Giraudo, bass
Emilio Teubal, piano
Importango was the tango trio founded in 2009 by Octavio Brunetti, Machiko Ozawa, and Adam Tully. They were formed around a weekly residence Tango Thursdays at Pane e Vino in Brooklyn, which they continued for five years.
Importango's album Tango For Import, came out on Panoramic Recordings after Octavio Brunetti's untimely death.
Octavio Brunetti - In Memoriam
Importango mourns the loss of founding member Octavio Brunetti (May 12th, 1975-August 29th, 2014). Octavio was a true musical genius and a master of tango and Argentine folk music far beyond his years. We are eternally grateful for his presence and deeply saddened by his sudden loss.
Octavio was present for the entire creation of Importango's album Tango For Import, released on Panoramic Recordings in April 2015.
