The first six selections on this CD are from a long-out-of-print LP featuring the brilliant clarinetist Buddy DeFranco with the Oscar Peterson Quartet (Peterson's trio plus drummer Louie Bellson). While the six selections are all standards, DeFranco and Peterson produce plenty of fireworks with the majority of the numbers being taken up-tempo. DeFranco sounds flawless on clarinet, making it sound so easy to play lightning-fast runs; few other clarinetists have ever come close. Recommended.
Initially panned by both the public and the press, Serú girán gradually won the Argentine people and became a historic album and the beginning of Serú Girán, the Argentine Beatles!….
El Valle Interior is the third and last studio album of Argentine rock band Almendra and the thirteenth with decisive participation of Luis Alberto Spinetta.
“This album titled “4to LP” by León Gieco.
But, Who is this singer? First, is Argentine and his the country-rock style. Somewhere I read that is the “Bob Dylan of South America”. If I could make a comparison would be with Neil Young (Band’s instrumentation, guitar, harmonica, etc).
What I like about Gieco? His voice, completely outside to the model of most Argentine groups and soloists, as Luis A. Spinetta and Charly García, model to follow.
This LP, in my opinion, is the highlight of the Gieco’s discography. I bought it for the song “Solo le pido a Dios (I only ask to God)” and a part taken from a recital in which appears the beautiful ballad “Canción de amor para Francisca”.
“Banda de Caballos Cansados” it was released in 1974 by Music Hall label.
“Pensar en nada” is the fifth studio album by the Argentine singer-songwriter León Gieco.
“Vivencia” is the disc that follows “Mi Cuarto” LP. I read somewhere in the network that after that LP (Mi Cuarto), they did not get better jobs … Hmmm, debatable.
