Los Lobos - Gates Of Gold (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88.2kHz

Artist: Los Lobos
Title: Gates Of Gold
Genre: Rock, Americana, Roots Rock, Heartland Rock, Chicano Rock, Latin Rock, Tex-Mex

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.
Although the album’s name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the band—David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin—saw parallels with their struggle to gain mainstream rock success while maintaining their Mexican roots. Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well -- and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.
Gates of Gold, the band’s new studio album on Savoy / 429 Records, their first in five years, is an American saga in the rich literary tradition of Steinbeck or Faulkner. Uplifting, hopeful and whimsical, the music touches their diverse musical potpourri, evidenced by the title track, “Mis-Treater Boogie Blues,” “Poquito Para Aqui.”
Produced by Los Lobos, Gates of Gold will be released on September 25th, the night the band will perform at The Beacon Theater in New York City’s Upper West Side. A full national tour will be underway with stops in LA, San Francisco, Chicago, and Nashville.
Gates of Gold follows Disconnected In New York City, a dynamic live album that marked the band’s 40th anniversary and launched their new association with 429 Records.

Recorded by Michael C. Ross at Oceanway Recording, Hollywood, CA, August 24 and 25, 2001


The accolades Singapore-born vocalist Jacintha has garnered are too numerous to list. Suffice it to say those looking for exquisite female jazz vocal performances that pay homage to the "old school" but with contemporary sensibilities will find Jacintha much to their liking. Her first two releases, Autumn Leaves and Here's To Ben, have become certified audiophile jazz classics. Her third release for Groove Note, Lush Life, features silky string arrangements by pianst Bill Cunliffe. With Anthony Wilson (guitar) and Dmitri Matheny (flugel), this is one of her best-sounding albums to date. This recording quality, as has come to be expected from her previous albums, is nothing short of exceptional.

Label: © Groove Note Records
Release Date: 2007
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:47:35
Recorded by Mike Ross at Sunset Sound on March 23rd and 24th, 2007.


Years in the making and with a cast of thousands and a budget in the millions, this has been an epic effort! The effort was certainly epic and, after a gap of almost three years since her last Groove Note release, the wait has been well worth it. Jacintha Goes To Hollywood sees the sensual and seductive-voiced chanteuse take on the challenge of performing theme songs and other well-known movie related tunes. The program features an eclectic mix of musical material, from the almost over familiar "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" and "California Dreaming" to "On Days Like These" from the original British version of The Italian Job. Her almost solemn and low-key performance of "California Dreaming" will completely blow you away as will her thrillingly dynamic and bossa tingled take on "The Windmills Of Your Mind."
Featuring Anthony Wilson on guitar, Iskandar Ismail on piano, Larry Goldings on Hammond B-3 and Ricky Woodward on sax, the album was recorded all analogue at 15 inches per second on two-inch 24-track masters mixed down to half-inch stereo at 30 inches per second stereo at Sunset Sound by Joe Harley (producer) and Mile Ross (engineer). The stereo masters were transferred to DSD by David Glaser at Airshow Mastering for the mastering of the Stereo Hybrid SACD.
