2007 release. Vampisoul presents the complete 1966 soundtrack to El Embajador y Yo, what many consider Peruvian jazz heavyweight Jaime Delgado Aparicio's masterpiece. The music in this rare action-comedy film combines, in an extraordinaire way, jazz with different styles that were hip in the mid '60s in a very groovy way. A genius score, with very creative arrangements and brilliant playing by an orchestra of sometimes over fifty musicians. From the beginning, you hear the creativity of composition and the brilliance of its execution by a fifty plus piece orchestra performing the movie's theme song. Two surf tunes appear on this album: "Sexy Surf" and "El Surf Del Embajador." Additionally this release includes five recordings by the Jaime Aparicio Jazz Trio (with double bassist Juan Anges Russo and drummer Kalle Englund) made in Lima, Peru, around 1964. It's not often that an individual leaves a permanent mark in the musical history of a country. In Peru, in the '60s and '70s, Jaime Delgado Aparicio, a pianist and composer, promoted and exposed all different styles of jazz to all social levels, helping many young students and professional musicians to understand this musical language. The CD includes extensive liner notes and a reproduction of the movie poster.
