***The first in the Kindred Spirits revisions series, making long lost or forgotten albums available again. Composer/conductor CARLOS FRANZETTI’s musical range seems to know no limits. Symphonic and chamber works, big band, Latin jazz and film scores have all been the focus of his vast talent. Music lovers are bound to know Franzetti's work since this artist has been a major force in the classical music field over the last 20 years. Born in Buenos Aires , Argentina , a young and ambitious Carlos Franzetti, moves to New York in 1974 to pursue a musical career. Soon after his arrival he puts together a group, which he calls THE PRIME ELEMENT. In 1976 they record an album entitled Alborada. This unique session is a musical journey that immediately represents all aspects of Franzetti's talent as an arranger, composer and musician. Seeking his own style, developing his versatility and translating it into a intelligent deep mix of fusion, spiritual-modal jazz and soul. The result is this rare beautiful gem. Originally released on Trova records, it only got an Argentinian release and was nearly forgotten until now.

LP $20.50

***CARLOS NINO’s latest electroaccoustic work, a beautiful album on a ambient / LIFE FORCE TRIO tip. Sublime stuff. High With A Little Help started production after the completion of The Life Force Trio Living Room. It was then, in early 2006, that Nino got to work on new tracks with members of BUILD AN ARK and his other ensembles, (including TLFT.) Over the last couple years, he kept a collection of these pieces, knowing that they were comprising a whole idea that he wanted to express. One of the main things the album features are samples from a variety of live and studio recordings he made. The concept, that the source of many of these works, was based on moments captured from sessions for other projects, was very interesting to him. On High With A Little Help, he shows the continuum of his work as an organizer, producer, arranger, composer, and musician by mixing it all up into one hearty stew. With African rhythms, ambient, experimental and funk based electronic sounds, string arrangements, freak flag flying folk flavors, improvisational soul-jazz, and cinematic score cues, Nino has woven a masterful quilt of influence and inspiration.
