Jorge Lopez Ruiz - Bronca Buenos Aries

This came as a recommendation from an acquaintance. I am often suspect of recommendations, more often than not they turn out to be mediocre lps that someone has a personal affinity towards. Not that I don't have many lps in my collection that would easily fall into that category.
 This on the other hand caught me off guard. I was fully expecting a decent '70's brazilian record. I had no idea how cool this thing was gonna be. It easily slides from quiet ensemble passages to Tranesque sax workouts to full modern big band arrangements. Never a misstep

From the liner notes.".recorded and composed in B.A. by Argentinian bassist Jorge Lopes Ruiz in 1971. Based on the writings of Jose tcherkaski and the "El Cordobazo" uprising,"

Hook - many thanks for this rare record. The Cordobazo was an important revolt in 1969 here in the Pampas and I'm old enough to have seen it. But I'm unable to dl. your file, my antivirus find some menace in it. Would you be so kind to check this out?

Just kidding, I was warned by your writing, highly addictive music indeed. again a big THANK YOU !

Very nice. I've enjoyed his beautiful De Prepo lp since it was reissued a while back, but I had missed this one. Thank you!

Wow nick - thanks for the heads up on De Prepo - I'm not sure I would have looked further but your recommendation prompted me - what a fantastic record!!
