Phil Manzanera - 801 Latino (CD)
Release Date: 08/11/09
An 801 album with a difference: Latin-based rock highlighting Manzanera's musical background and individual guitar style.
Phil Manzanera has had a lifelong love and empathy for Cuban music and the country of his childhood. Over the years he has played several concerts in Cuba with some of the country's leading musicians, and in 1999 there was an opportunity for an 801 Latino project in the UK. The concept was the same as the original 801 - assemble a band from a wide musical spectrum for a limited period and record a live show, in this case in Newark, Lincolnshire, UK. The result is '801 Latino', a fireball of Latin energy intertwined with Manzanera's distinctive, fluid guitar lines.
