The rock band Expreso Nova, formed in Buenos Aires in the eighties makes its «come-back» in 2021 with a new single: Mil Sonidos
It might be a come-back on making music together, but in career/discography terms it’s a late day debut: after 33 years of a regenerative pause, the quartet finally makes their first song officially available on April 20th 2021.
This is Raul Barboza “European Trio”. We’ve been actively performing in France and abroad for the past decade, but we never recorded in the studio as a trio before (Raul and I did an album alone as a duo, Ruta 40, Norberto recorded with Raul on some of Barboza’s albums from the late 1990’s and Norberto and I have collaborated on each other’s records for a long time, most notably on Norberto Pedreira Trio).
After some shows in France a couple of years ago, we decided to go to the studio and informally perform our usual set-list, just for fun and to have a recorded souvenir of our more “free” improvised takes on some of Barboza’s standard “chamamés”.
I went back to those shelved sessions this year in order to choose the best takes and mix down the 4-track masters for a listening session with Raul and Norberto.
The relaxed, informal, warm (albeit rough at times), sensitive and fun feel, pleased us. So we decided to release it “as is”.
