Alfonso Lovo: Live from the Fish House

Lovo at Fish House

You want to know what’s an amazing album? La Gigantona by Alfonso Lovo. And unlike many artists on the Numero roster, who might be two or three decades removed from the music industry they once engaged, Lovo has never stopped playing, his imaginative and virtuosic guitar phrasings still very recognizable today. While our rollout of this long-lost Latin-jazz masterpiece garnered much praise from across the pond and here on American soil, Lovo charted his own course, securing scattered press in the Spanish-speaking world. The following segment aired on Centroamerica TV, which is available on the DISH Network. Filmed at Miami’s Fish House, Lovo and company deliver faithful renditions of La Gigantona favorites almost 40 years since they were tracked in Lovo’s native Nicaragua. Gone are the sheets of tape delay and layers of analog synths, revealing the sturdy compositions upon which Lovo’s psychedlic odyssey was initially built upon. To hear the madness in its original manifestation, click on over to the Numero Group website, where we will happily ship you La Gigantona (on CD or LP) to enjoy with the seafood pairing of your choice.

I believe an Octopus Fricassee, and New Orleans spicy gumbo, with BBQ shrimp, with a Nicaraguan Victoria beer, would be appropriate !!!
