The playing of Argentinian pianist Enrique Villegas (1913-1986) was unique, exciting and continuously interesting, with a special character of its own founded on his classical training and jazz inclinations. He moved to the United States in 1955, when he was already well-known in his country, with the intention of establishing himself in North America as a Jazz pianist. His nightclub debut at the Cafe Bohemia was an instant success, and his performances were acclaimed by both critics and public.
His career was already on its way, but two years after his arrival in New York, he drastically decided, due to artistic discrepancies with his record label, to return to Buenos Aires. This CD contains the two historic trio albums Villegas recorded during his stint in New York City.
