I wish I had been more involved with the El Quinto Sol story.
I certainly wasn’t there for the beginning and I fear I might have missed the finale. It is a key central chapter that we are focusing on here. Somehow, the plot took this amazing Mexican three piece on an Iceland tour in 2017 and, by necessity, on to the stage at Lucky Records.
This session gives us an all too brief glimpse of an inspired free form trio with a warmth to their music that often eludes lesser outfits prone to dabble with a loose jazz construct.
My advice? Listen to it, let it flow and go with it.
And to the members of El Quinto Sol, if you are out there, talk to me.
