Uruguayan born violinist and (Argentine tango) orchestra leader Francisco "Pirincho" Canaro (1888-1964) had a career that spanned many decades, and his orchestra was one of the most recorded. Much of his recorded music is in the classic salon style of the 1940s, but he is also considered a member of the old guard, and some of his later recordings contributed to the transition to concert tango. For many contemporary dancers and listeners, his early golden age recordings are the best. Some of his later recordings have a glossy pop sound that quickly grows tiresome.
