Boogaloo Colombiano con Los 5 De Oro

So the lack of posts here at Super Sonido would probably lead one to believe that I am still on vacation. Rest assured I’ve been home for almost a month now, staring at the wall and still thinking about my vacation. December and January have always been the slowest months for me. Those are the months I usually take a vacation, escape, and wallow in some form of weird self-pity/deprecation. To make things up to you folks, to redeem myself in a fit way, I have only 4 words for you:

28 DAYS OF 45!!!

That’s right – starting February 1st I’ll do another round of a 45 a day. But I’m going to need your help this time, so if anyone out there wants a day to post your thing = it’s all yours! Email me at sonidofranko@gmail.com if you need more info/help.

Anyway, some amazing infusion of Latin music from Colombia’s Los 5 De Oro. Not much was to be found about the group, but it appears that pianist Angel Macias had made a name and career for himself outside of his quintet. Nevertheless, this album is outstanding – and it really holds up to the Fania/Tico sound they were trying to capture. The B side was my favorite, which all the songs posted come from – along with a rendition of Jimmy  Sabater’s  “Alafia”  (Colombians can’t seem to put down the accordion). Strongly recommended album from beginning to end. Enjoy!
