ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
(También sigue en español abajo.)

¡Qué Cosa! is Latin Music that draws inspiration from a large spectrum of musical styles and sounds. The composers, Larry Arone and Maite Garcia, hail from backgrounds as diverse as the music you’ll hear on the album, ‘Viejo Amor’. Garcia is 100% Chilean and is highly influenced by her folkloric roots. Arone, who is 100% North American, draws from his distinctive California roots. Interestingly enough, they were both mostly raised in California in the days of "FM Album Rock" which continues to influence their writing and producing style.

The songs on ‘Viejo Amor’ hold Spanish Lyrics with honest content expressing themes of love, betrayal, social commentary, forgiveness, joy and hope. A traditional Latin Percussion Section of Congas, Timbales, Bongos and Bell combine with brass representation from Trumpet, Trombone, Sax, Flute, and Flugelhorn. Beautiful Piano montunos and lush string arrangements round out the instrumentation of the album.

Maite gives today’s Latina a fresh voice. Whether expressing a mesmerizing Bolero, a poignant reflection of domestic violence, or the dizziness of first falling in love, she proudly embraces the opportunity to resonate with the listener with an inner strength, elegance and grace. Her nurturing sound is a welcome addition to the sometimes male dominated, testosterone driven Latin music scene.

Arone and Garcia are a triple threat as writers, performers and producers. Their independent release with Dos Claves Records is everything it should be. It is polished, completely original, and undeniably catchy with artistic integrity, skilled craftsmanship, and tremendous sonic quality yielding an intimate listening experience that sparkles.

¡Qué Cosa! es Música Latina que saca inspiración de una gran variedad de estilos y sonidos musicales. Los compositors, Larry Arone y Maite Garcia, vienen de entornos tan diversos como la música que escucharás en el disco, ‘Viejo Amor’. Garcia es 100% Chilena y muy influenciada por sus raíces folclóricas. Arone, quien es 100% norteamericano, está inspirado por sus raíces Californianos distintivos. Como hecho interesante, ambos fueron criados en su mayoría en California durante la época de "FM Album Rock" que sigue de influencia para su estilo de escribir y producir.

Las canciones en ‘Viejo Amor’ llevan letras en español con contenido honesto expresando temas de amor, traición, comentario social, perdón, alegria, y esperanza. Una sección de percusión Latina tradiconal de Congas, Timbales, Bongos y Campana se combina con representación deTrompeta, Trombón, Sax, Flauta, y Fiscorno. Bellos montunos de Piano y exuberantes arreglos de cuerdas completan la instrumentación del disco.

Maite le da una voz fresca a la mujer Latina de hoy. Ya sea expresando un Bolero hipnotizante, una reflexión conmovedor de violencia doméstica, o la locura de primer enamorarse, ella acoge orgullosamente la oportunidad de resonar con el oyente con una fuerza interior, elegancia y gracia. Su sonido reconfortante es una adición agradable a la escena musical Latina tradicionalmente dominada por el machismo y testosterona.

Arone y Garcia son una triple amenaza como compositors, músicos, y productores. Su estreno independiente con Dos Claves Records es todo lo que debe ser. Es fino, completamente original, e innegablemente pegadiza con integridad artistica, artesanía hábil, y tremenda calidad sónica que rinde una experiencia intima auditivo que reluce.

FIVE STARS IS NOT ENOUGH
Okay, first off, I know next to nothing about the Latin genre. That said, if music speaks to me, if
it's genuine, if it tugs at my heart strings, I don't care about the genre...it's suddenly the music I listen to. THIS IS THAT RECORD. I find
myself listening to it over and over and over again. The songs are diverse, featuring different tempi, expressing and eliciting a variety of moods (in general they infect you with the desire to dance, yet check out the contemplative, heart-string-tugging Cariño, Recuerdos, and Canicas for a nice change of pace), all of them extremely well composed, performed, produced, and distributed throughout the record for maximum effect, providing the listener from first song to last with the sort of deeply felt EXPERIENCE that, for me, makes a good record great (yes, I said great). Finally--and most important in my book--Que Cosa manages to give even the most up-tempo pieces that element of HEART that distinguishes them from the run-of-the-mill dance tunes I used to associate with the genre. But not anymore: thanks to Que Cosa, I'M A NEW FAN OF LATIN MUSIC!!! :]

Wow!
I had the great pleasure of listening to this album and it is amazing! It has so much heart and soul and spirit...it is a far cry from the crappy studio manufactured pop-tart Latin that is out there. It is just not for fans of Latin...the sound transcends genres. It is simply good music...which is hard to find these days.

Definitely pick this CD up. It is awesome.

Oh My God
I went and saw the band play live in San Luis Obispo and was blown away with the music. If you like Latin music you will LOVE this CD.

From a friend and a fan
After seeing them live at the CD release concert, I am amazed at how well this album resonates with everyone. Well, it's actually not a big surprise. Viejo Amour is an album with serious chops. Moving, topical and sometimes whimsical, it draws you in and doesn't disappoint. I have had the pleasure of listening to this album as it went through its early stages. The transformation is nothing short of amazing. Keep your iPod charged because this album will wear out your battery!
