Tres Hombres is the record that brought ZZ Top their first Top Ten record, making them stars in the process.
Le cinquième opus discographique de l'ensemble La Camera delle Lacrime (direction Bruno Bonhoure et Khaï-dong Luong) invite à suivre les pas du moine franciscain Guillaume de Rubrouck, envoyé de Saint-Louis à la rencontre du Grand Khan. Au moyen d'un instrumentarium varié (vièle chinoise erhu, kamanche, cornemuse, vielle à roue, etc …) Bruno Bonhoure et ses musiciens évoquent en musique les paysages et les populations rencontrées par le moine et ses accompagnateurs à travers les plaines de l'Asie Centrale, jusqu'à leur arrivée à Karakorum.
There is no shortage of recordings of Manuel de Falla's El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat) and El amor brujo (Love, the Wizard), with more on the way, thanks to the centenary of the former in 2019. Even casual listeners may reflect that this delightful work has never, despite plenty of changes in taste in music of the interwar period, fallen out of style. It was on the cutting edge when it was premiered, and yet its fusion of flamenco influences with growing French neoclassicism is irresistible for general symphonic audiences.
Carles Benavent was born in 1954 in the Poblé Sec neighborhood in Barcelona. A totally self taught jazz bassist, he founded the group, "Música Urbana" with whom he recorded two albums. He came to create a new form of playing the electric bass "Flamenco style", using the pick to create a special type of alzapúa (style of plucking the strings with the finger and pick). He is one of the priveleged geniuses that is sought out by a long list of artists such as Chick Corea, Miles Davis and Paco de Lucía (to name a few), and with the ladder he recorded "Paco de Lucía interperpreta a Manuel de Falla". Since then the interaction between the two musicians has been consistent and fruitful.
SEON (Studio Erichson) is a period music label by the legendary producer Wolf Erichson. Erichson founded the label in 1969 as one of the first labels dedicated only to authentic music. The recordings were made with the best available recording techniques of the time and still deliver a high quality product in line with today's standards. This special boxset offers all SEON CD reissues from the late 90s on 85 CDs in a limited edition boxset.
Blessed with their first full-fledged hit album, ZZ Top followed it up with Fandango!, a record split between a side of live tracks and a side of new studio cuts.
