Quinteplus - Same
Ultra rare original first pressing of this monster jazz record out of Argentina from 1972.
Great work by Quinteplus all the way through, a very solid Lp from start to finish! Jorge Gonzalez, here on electric bass and double bass, and Santiago Gioccobe, here on electric piano, were members of the country's New Jazz Collective from the early 1960's alongside with Gato Barbieri and his brother. The 2 lads were helped on this record by Gustavo Bergalli on trumpet, Jorge Anders on tenor sax, and Carlos "Pocho" Lapouble on drums and the result is pretty impressive!
Of course the magnificent "El Marques" in 3 parts with its great drum and bass job without omitting the great work on sax. But also really nice tracks such as "El Pasito de Nano" or "Blackman, el Justiciero". I've recorded a long soundclip here below with some more tracks, give it a listen!
The cover has signs of aging and is between VG and VG+ condition. It has brown spots on front and back but no ringwear. The corners are slightly folded and on the opening edge, about 1cm is torned in the middle. Otherwise in quite a nice shape.
The record looks VG to VG+ with lots of hairlines on both sides but fortunately nothing deep. It plays much better in my opinion with only light background noise during quiet moments and in between tracks. 1 or 2 clicks can be heard (not much) but no skips nor jumps. Try the soundclip to make your own opinion! Rarely shows up in any condition so be quick!
