Those who have followed the artistic and recording career of Lalo Schifrin since his arrival to the United States will be more familiar with his jazz, bossa and movie soundtrack records, but may not be aware of his first Latin recordings. Unavailable for many years, 'Piano Español' helps us to discover another facet of this remarkable musician.

'Piano español' is piano by Lalo Schifrin with the colorful rhythms of Latin America and Spain. 'Piano Español' treats us to a listening panorama of the multi-talents of Lalo Schifrin. He wrote all the arrangements and it is this writing, along with his piano interpretations that set this recording apart.

Lalo is devilishly clever. He gives us an ample smattering of Latin Jazz through the use of four trumpets, five saxes, oboe and bongo drums as his piano cuts through "Frenesí", "My Shawl" and "El Cumbanchero." In the latter, Lalo displays his command of jazz piano and the unusual speed of his hands along the keyboard [...]
