Cover of: Fruko Y Sus Tesos - Tesura
Vampisoul | LP | 19 €

First ever reissue of "Tesura" (1970), the debut by Fruko y sus Tesos, which displays a diamond-in-the-rough simplicity born of the street, flaunting a macho swagger that is compelling in its focus and elemental integrity, heavily influenced by Willie Colón's gangster posturing in New York.From the severely separated audio channeling to the uncompromising rhythmic approach and ubiquitous sharp trumpet stabs in the style of Ricardo Ray and Ray Barretto, "Tesura" more than lives up to its title (slang for 'toughness'). Fruko is right out front, his giant electric bass positioned in the center. The emphasis is on allowing the musicians to flex their muscles and strut their stuff, with many purely instrumental sections in a descarga (jam session) style echoing the freedoms being explored by the previously mentioned New York heavyweights Ray, Colón and Barretto, as well as Eddie Palmieri, Larry Harlow, Louie Ramírez and Johnny Pacheco.Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl.Over the past few years we have been fortunate to work with Discos Fuentes on several projects compiled from their rich catalogue, and we are continuing our collaboration with the legendary Colombian label with a series of facsimile reissues of classic Fuentes LPs. The upcoming months will bring new pressings of albums by Lisandro Meza y su Combo, Peregoyo y su Combo Vacaná, Pedro Laza y sus Pelayeros and many more...TRACKLISTSide 11. EL VIDRIERO2.
