Tango Mar

Story

Many years ago, my husband and I took a trip to Costa Rica and "discovered" this beautiful place called Tango Mar, near Tambor on the Pacific Coast. When we returned, I was in the studio with my good friend Alan and as I described the place to him, he started playing a few chords on the piano. And literally, within minutes, the song, Tango Mar, was born. The lyrics came to me so easily as he played; I just wrote down what I recalled and felt about my time there. When we recorded the song for the "On My Way" CD, we asked our wonderful talented friend, Joe Massimino, to play the piano. His playing still brings tears to my eyes. We lost Joe not too long after recording the CD but his memory lives on in all every incredible note.
