Por Una Cabeza is a classic tango song from 1935 with music by Carlos Gardel and words by Alfredo Le Pera. The title refers to a term from Spanish horse-racing, literally meaning ‘by a head’ – a very narrow, photo finish win. The lyrics describe a compulsive horse-track gambler, liking his addiction to his attraction to women.This arrangement by Bogusław Furtok was originally written for his double bass quartet, The Flying Basses, and is a stylish and fun piece for any bass ensemble.
