José Razzano, Argentine Tango musician and composer, with Gardel in 1926.

José Razzano

Guitar player, singer and composer (25 February 1887 – 30 April 1960)

His fame as good singer gave origin to his first contract to record discs for the Victor company between 1911 and 1912. They are ten folk numbers.

A couple of years later, he recorded his voice for ERA discs.

Later came the stage of his artistic association with Carlos Gardel, from which would result the famous Gardel-Razzano duo. 

José Razzano had a splendid tenor voice, of perfect intonation, that blended perfectly with Gardel’s range. 

Gardel-Razzano’s success and popularity had no limits.

They worked intensively. They traveled to Uruguay, Brazil, Chile and Spain until, reaching 1925, Razzano, with his vocal cords seriously damaged, gave up singing.

Bandoneon player, band leader and composer of the tango generation of 1910, he carried out an interesting work in several of the best groups of the period with a style rooted in the Decarean school, either as instrumentalist and leader or as in the way he conceived his works as composer.

As for this latter aspect, he wrote several instrumental numbers of refined conception.

Among them, “Populacho”, originally an instrumental, later bore lyrics by Carlos Bahr and changed its title for “No me extraña”.
