Don't be fooled by what you hear: Argentinean musician JP Jofre isn't an accordionist. He plays the bandoneón, a member of the concertina family that's known for being an essential part of tango ensembles in South America. Now based here in New York City, Jofre and his squeezebox (and his band) drop by the Soundcheck studio to play songs from his latest album, Hard Tango.
