Growing Bin Records present the first reissue of Señora's self-titled release, originally released in 1981. A favorite private German jazz funk gem. Spring is in the air and groove is in the heart for Hamburg's most loveable record label. Following the freak beat festival of Wolf Müller and Niklas Wandt's Instrumentalmusik Von Der Mitte Der World comes a release that's been in the pipeline since the organic imprint first took root; the first reissue of the beautiful Señora. Beguiling and brilliant, this private press princess makes you want to dance, dream, and do cartwheels, then breaks your heart when you realize you'll never meet her -- a rare beauty indeed. So it's time to let Basso play cupid and introduce you to the love of your life. Eagle-eyed associates might recognize the sleeve as Basso's everyday avatar, chosen in tribute to his favorite jazz-funk record of all-time. Originally released in limited quantities back in 1981, the self-titled Señora was the sole release from a quartet of German groove maniacs, coming together in one ecstatic union of rhythmic precision, smooth riffing, and melodic mastery. Take opener "Paul" for example; a continent away from the West End, this sublime slice of raw guitar, silken keys, and gliding bass could have made Mel Cheren proud. From there you're taken on a journey through the syncopated slide of the jazzy "My Way, Your Way", the samba sway of the mild and mellow "Easy Going", and the poetic piano of "Pearl", a triumphantly esoteric tone poem to close the A side. "Señora" ups the tempo on the flipside, galloping through tight triplets, fusion guitar, and mind-expanding synth play. "In The Mood For A Walk" brings a strolling bassline and tender tonality, executed with all the ease of the Sunday morning which dawns on the extended and expansive cool, bringing the LP to its final emotional release.
