He was an authentic innovator of tango, either as player or as composer.
As a pianist, he was the first to fill in the bass line with embellishments when the melody rests.
On December 10, 1953, he passed away.
He was 57 years old, but he had known life as if he were just a century old. «Was there anything to be done on Earth after having known all?», said about him Enrique Cadícamo, his collaborator of always, with whom he composed "Shusheta".
