Mosaico de Gaitas

Just a quick little public service announcement here. The wonderful Soundway Records is releasing a few limited box-set singles at the end of the month and I couldn’t be more excited. Whether it’s Thailand, Nigeria, Panama or Colombia, Soundway is there digging up the best music and history they can find. Everything this label has done has been beautifully restored and packaged in fantastic packinging. Not just a reissue label, but an archival, documentarian label.

This particular video is from the 3×7″  boxset of Lucho Bermúdez y Su Orchestra, the Colombian musical mastermind. This guy was the Colombian Stan Kenton, just playing heavy, beautiful arrangements. The sound quality for the video is a bit off, but it’s the quality of the music performance is worth putting up with a little sound issues. The third and fourth songs are absolutely heavy, but unfortunately I don’t think they’re on the 7″ series.

If you enjoy this, check out one of my favorite blogs on the internet, Global Groove for a download of one of Lucho’s great albums from the late 50s/early 60s.
