Malerba rehearsing with Alberto Tagle

This photo from 1940 shows Ricardo Malerba (on the left) and his pianist rehearsing a song together with singer Alberto Tagle (on the right), better known to present-day dancers as Rafael Canaro’s primary singer in the 1930s. Tagle didn’t stay with Malerba for long, and we have no related recordings by Malerba from these early years of the Golden Age. It’s a shame, because our archive work proves how many surprising, wonderful combinations of famous musicians and singers were playing live everywhere during the best tango years, sadly without leaving any recordings behind.
