    From World Circuit Records' album 'Cumbia Cumbia 1 & 2'.

    Described by Vox magazine on its original release as ‘proof of the existence of God’ this collection brings together thirty of the greatest recordings made by Colombia’s legendary record label, Discos Fuentes, between 1954 and 1988.

    About the track:
    Adolfo Echeverría’s unique style is rooted in that coastal resort which has nurtured many leading musicians in the Tropical style. His distinctive vocal style is refreshingly light and nasal, with a strangely attractive delivery and occasional vagueness that leaves words fading in the air.

    A fabulously languid production where instruments move casually around the cool, jaunty piano, and short trombone refrains emerge as if from sea-mist. The pianist sneakily fragments the melody into jumpy, bebop-like chords in a briefly spiky jam session before the singer returns.
