Pepito's new gig
The blog timbaporsiempre has a post saying that Pepito, formerly of Pupy, is already recording in Miami with a producer, Luis "Papo" Marquez, who has apparently produced Willie Chirino and Jerry Rivera, among others. Even more pertinent - on the blog there is an audio clip from what sounds like a new recording of Un poquitico al revés, a song that Pupy recorded with Pepito, first as a demo, then on the album, which now looks like it won't see the light of day until Pepito's vocals have been replaced. (I'm speculating - I know nothing official. But given that it was supposed to be released in May and it wasn't, and members of his own group don't even have copies, well ...)
Anyway, this is a really beautiful song, written by Pepito, kind of in the style of another great song he wrote and recorded with Pupy, Del trabajo a casa from the Mi timba "cerra" album. Can't say I'm mad about this new recording - apart from Pepito's voice, which sounds great as always. Go to the blog and check it out for yourself.
