“Fetén” brings together a selection of recordings made in Spain between 1961 and 1974. The tracks selected were originally released on records that have become impossible to find, and which, in most cases, have never been reissued. These are unique recordings spanning modal jazz, hard bop and even avant-garde jazz by Spanish musicians such as Mantequilla, Juan Carlos Calderón, Ricard Roda and Vlady Bas, as well as by international jazzmen like Dusko Goykovich, Lou Bennett and Tino Contreras. The selection is completed by the inclusion of a previously unissued track. It’s a cover in a trio format of ‘Solar’, a Miles Davis composition, which has been rescued from the master tapes and sees the light now for the first time after being left out of the original edition of “Nits de jazz al Jamboree”, released in 1968 by the Edigsa label.
"Years of searches in market stalls and record fairs, trades with other collectors, phone calls to second-hand dealers, countless hours of online research, and a lot of dust on my fingers have made it possible to bring together all the recordings presented here. My hope is that besides bringing self-proclaimed jazz fans closer to these historic recordings, this compilation also manages to inspire curiosity in other kinds of music lover. Most importantly, however, I hope that its music provides many hours of listening pleasure". Javi Bayo
