This tongue-in-cheek approach to the classic tango will keep your percussion section busy with lots of Spike Jones'type comic effects, including siren whistle, bulb horn, slapstick, vibraslap, guiro, and clapping. To aid with performance flexibilty, an alternate optional snare drum part is provided for more accomplished players. This is one 'fun tango' that literally has all the bells and whistles! (2:10).
