From first record in 1960, Jorge López Ruiz has been a living witness to Argentina jazz, and until his regrettable death in 2018, he has been creating amazing works that can be called legendary. This work was released in 1980 and recorded in New York with session between local jazz musicians such as Eddie Gomez, Anthony Jackson, Jeremy Steig and Argentinean players such as Pocho Lapouble, Jorge Dalto and Carlos Franzetti. Total 5 tunes, the opening track, "La Chiquita Esa," is an elegant Latin jazz that is full of technicality and flawlessness from each member, rhythm work makes dance, trumpet, candombe and the piano leads the way in the second half of "El Candombe de Bolita," a great jazz rock tune, "A Marieta" is a swirling groove full of energy, and "Romancero" is a spiritual jazz tune with an experimental feel. It's a bit hidden in his works, but it's just submerged.

アルゼンチンジャズ聡明期から惜しくも18年に亡くなるまで正に生きる証人として伝説的とさえ言える作品群を発表し続けてきたJorge López Ruiz。本作は80年にリリースされたニューヨーク録音作品。Eddie Gomez, Anthony Jackson, Jeremy Steigなど地元のジャズ・ミュージシャンとPocho Lapouble, Jorge Dalto, Carlos Franzettiのアルゼンチン人プレイヤーとのセッションを記録を収録したもので、まずはオープニングの各人のテクニカルな部分も光る隙の見当たらないエレガントなラテン・ジャズ”La Chiquita Esa”、思わず踊りたくなるようなリズムワーク、香り立ちうねるトランペット、カンドンベ、後半のピアノが先導するパートに移る珠玉のジャズロック”El Candombe de Bolita”、躍動感に溢れたグルーヴの渦を感じるような”A Marieta”、エクスペリメンタルな触感も滲ませるスピリチュアルな”Romancero”等、浸るしかない全5曲。彼の作品でも再評価著しい一枚となっています。素晴らしい。
