Alberto Suárez Villanueva

Pianist, leader and composer (4 February 1913 – 12 December 1980)

He was a notable musician of our beloved Tango that contributed to the evolution of the genre either in his work as a player, in the melodic and rhythmical aspects, and in his work as a composer.

While still a kid his parents sent him to study piano at the Williams Conservatory of Rosario. In that institution, he got strong musical training, not only as an instrumentalist but also in harmony and composition.

In the mid-thirties he decided to settle in the city of Buenos Aires.

In 1942 maestro Lucio Demare with his orchestra and Juan Carlos Miranda on vocals recorded “Al compás de un tango”.

Juan Carlos Miranda

Singer (23 July 1917 – 8 July 1999)

Lucio Demare imposed a delicate and warm style that matched well with that of the singer.

He recorded with this orchestra 14 numbers.

Among them: “No te apures Carablanca”.

These are enough merits for keeping him into account and for paying attention to his sound legacy.

Singer (23 July 1917 – 8 July 1999)

It was 1991, somebody introduced him to me and time later I saw him again.
It was in his working place, at the Escuela Técnica (Technical School), a branch of the Army located on Cabildo Avenue.
There he worked as barber.
It was by that time that I invited him to my program Siempre el tango (Always tango) on Radio Municipal.
It took place in the early months of 1992, on occasion of celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the premiere of the tango “Malena”.

Miranda recorded “Malena” —after Troilo with Fiorentino had waxed it—, on January 23, 1942. 

He was the first one in singing it but not the first one in committing it to disc.
