Introducing Villegas

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A great early and slightly obscure album from Argentine pianist Enrique Villegas – recorded in New York in the mid 50s, with bass by Milt Hinton and drums from Cozy Cole! Villegas' approach to the keys is very rhythmic and a little bit pyrotechnic at times – almost inspired a bit by the Garner generation of Americans, but also showing its own sense of timing, space, and drama. The approach is almost equal parts jazz and more mainstream piano work – always creative, and well-matched with the sensitive talents of Hinton and powerful touch of Cole. Titles include "Yesterdays", "Lazy Bones", "Where Or When", "Poor Butterfly", "Someties I'm Happy", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Embraceable You". (Original 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track four. Cover has a partially split top seam, light wear, an ink stamp on the front, and some small stains on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A very groovy album that has Milt playing jazzy vibes with a tight string quartet that does more than just back him up – they sort of solo and provide some rhythm, too, and give the whole album a very very cool sound. The rest of the lineup's great, too, because James Moody is all over the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!
