Editorial Reviews

There are those who conform to what they have accomplished and others who prefer to take risks and set new goals and standards. Jorge Drexler is without a doubt the latter. His new album 'Amar La Trama' (Love the Plot) focuses on the plot of the story rather than its final destination. For that passion, for the story plot for the space between the beginning and the end - he decided to rearrange how he recorded this album and made it in a peculiar way: he transformed a TV studio into a recording studio and for 4 days recorded his songs LIVE with an array of musicians in front of an audience. This way he worked without the pressure of the typical LIVE album and the coldness of a recording studio and also maintained the freshness of a LIVE band. In contrast with his prior albums there are no electronic instruments involved. This album is completely organic, with real instruments.
'Amar La Trama' sounds different, with the special and sincere warmth of elegant songs, with which Drexler keeps on demonstrating that he is the master in creating unforgettable melodies that come with a mix of urban rhythms and sounds from his native Uruguay, but without abandoning the concept of the songs and forgetting his music is popular music. This way his songs can be enjoyed by everyone. You only need sensibility to get close and personal with his songs like 'Tres Mil Milliones de Latidos' (Three Thousand Million Heartbeats), 'Aquiles por su Talon de Aquiles' (Achilles for His Heel), 'Todos A Sus Puestos' (Everyone In Their Places), 'Toque De Queda' (Curfew), songs with a brilliant wind section, hot percussion and awesome guitar sections. All of this mixed together with a taste that will move you. Collaborations like Ben Sindram's voice and organ in the classic version of 'I Don't Worry About A Thing', Josemi Cardona's Spanish guitar in 'Los Transeuntes' and a beautiful duo with Leonor Watling in 'Toque De Queda'

este es uno de los mejores discos que tengo, no solo de Drexler, sino de toda la música en general.

es maravilloso el sonido, recién lo vi además en concierto y es un disco perfectamente realizable en vivo por la naturaleza de la grabación y por la naturalidad del sonido generado al grabarlo en sesiones multitrack.

Las piezas son genialidades todas y cada una, de principio a fin.

completamente recomendado!

otra joya en una serie de joyas de uno de los mejores cantautores en lengua hispana hoy dia. Drexler tiene una alegria incontenible y un don para captar ese regocijo por la vida en la letra y la musica de sus canciones. Si uno tiene un aprecio por la musica contemporanea en espanol, no hay nadie mejor donde empezar que este gran cantante uruguayo.

What a wonderful album! Even better to see it performed live in concert (which I had the distinct pleasure of doing while staying in Santiago in 2010). This album is not be missed!

Otra gran realizaciion del gran cantante, musico y compositor uruguayo Jorge Drexler. Letras complejas y llenas de verdades, como siempre; añoranzas, sentimientos, musica exquisita y arreglos impecables del musico americano (Uruguay esta en America, no?) mas importante de los ultimos 25 años por lo menos. Gracias Uruguay por haber engendrado este maravilloso artista de quien oiras mucho, mucho mas.
