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.

1960年の1st LPから数えてアルゼンチンジャズの生きる証人として惜しくも18年に亡くなるまでもはや伝説的と言っていいほど素晴らしい作品を創作し続けてきたJorge López Ruiz。本作は80年リリースの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り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最高のジャズロック”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感じるスピリチュアルな”Romancero”等、浸るしかない全5曲。彼の作品では少しスルーしがちですがやはり素晴らしいの一言です。
