Our never-ending mission to reveal the under-appreciated-yet-worthy-of-attention jazz masters around the world has now taken us far away and across the sea to Mexico. Tino Contreras has produced countless recordings, played on innumerable live dates, and has performed with various jazz groups all around the world. Yet he is still relatively unknown, and probably Mexico's best kept secret in jazz. This 4 track EP limited edition EP presents the wide-ranging musical skills of Tino as a jazz musician. Latin-esque ritual chants in "Orfeo en los Tambores," avant-garde experimentation with a psychedelic subframe in "Orbita," waltz-time jazz in "La Noche de los Dioses" and religiously-themed choral jazz in the song "Credo." Hand-numbered edition of 600 copies.
