- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

A seminal South American jazz record that stands as Jorge López Ruiz’s magnum opus. Crafted by the Buenos Aires-born double bassist and composer in 1967 as a protest suite against Argentina’s oppressive military dictatorship, this album was initially banned at the time of its release. But nothing could have silenced El Grito (translated as The Scream), a courageous concept album of cinematic arrangements that embodies Ruiz’s revolutionary ideas through hard bop-leaning, big band jazz. 

While professedly a fiery political statement, El Grito also functions as a swinging and dramatic LP for cool hepcats to dance to. From the urgency of "M.A.B. - Amor" to the sublimely emotive "Tendré El Mundo”, Ruiz leads his virtuoso orchestra through a passionate whirlwind that will sweep the listener off their feet. - The Analog Vault
