Tango Look-a-likes

Friday night we made a booking to go to a jazz bar just off Park Avenue. It was great night and after I had tucked into to a bucket of barbecued ribs smothered in a thick sauce we sat down to watch the Pablo Ziegler Quartet (you can here them play here) who just blew me away. The music is Latin tango and wonderfully complex yet so full of emotion. They were joined on stage by Nestor Torres, a flutist of considerable skill and power.
The other thing I noticed about them was that they seemed to be a band of look a likes. Ziegler looks like the actor Danny Aiello, Torres reminded me of a Latin Jerry Seinfield and I swear the bassist was Robert De Niro on a night out.
