JORGE LOPEZ RUIZ - ENCUENTRO EN NEW YORK
Jorge Lopez Ruiz for Chango Argentina from 1980.
LEW SOLOFF (trp), FRED LIPSIUS (sax), JEREMY STEIG (fl), EDDIE GOMEZ (bass), ANTHONY JACKSON (el.bass), RAY BARRETO (congas), JORGE DALTO (p), "POCHO" LAPOUBLE (dr), JORGE LOPEZ RUIZ (bass)
Another first in blogland from OIR with this quality slab of latin fusion from Jorge Lopez Ruiz who also arranged and produced the album.A glittering all star line up produce a somewhat understated set of tunes three of which are penned by Ruiz and one each by Franzetti and Lapouble."El Candombe De Bolita" is a funky clavinet driven work out but overall the lp has a quietly exhilarating subtlety that provides a rich framework for the soloists.
This album is a real grower so give it a few listens and your patience will be well rewarded.
