Frankie Reyes - Originalitos LPStones Throw
Vinyl LP pressing. Frankie Reyes aka Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker is back with Originalitos, his second album for Stones Throw. Throughout eight nostalgia-inducing original compositions created on the Oberheim synthesizer, Frankie Reyes draws on his Puerto Rican heritage and the sounds of everyday life. Each work on Originalitos is filled with symbolism referring to Reyes' lineage and implied within the track titles, which reference his family, passing time and 'Puerto Rican sweetness'. While Frankie Reyes' previous album Boleros Valses y Mas reimagined Latin standards, Originalitos takes us inside his musical world and in Reyes' words 'brings together my classical roots and my present day modern life.'
