Album Review

Ruiz, Jorge Lopez – “El Grito” – [Light in the Attic]

aarbor   2/9/2022   12-inch, Jazz

Jorge Lopez Ruiz was an Argentine double bass player, composer/arranger who was known for his soundtracks. This is a suite for jazz orchestra – the sound is 1960’s Big Band jazz. It could easily be mistaken for a soundtrack for a 1960’s film. Lopez Ruiz is the band leader on this 1967 recording. El Grito means the scream. The album was banned on its release because it takes a critical stance towards Argentina’s chaotic political situation and the military regime at that time. In its day it was a trailblazing release, very non-conforming. AArbor
