Well, nostalgia just caught me off guard and I've started playing non-stop my old ORL cds. Just wanted to talk about these awesome 09 Euro recordings that captured Omar's highest point as a solo artist with the best line up possible...You know, Pridgen with the Mickey Mouse t-shirt, Ximena in super-cute mode, Marcel, Money Mark - pure psycho jazz lines - Juan..
Typical set list, almost perfect
Sueños del higado
How to bill the bilderberg group
Dyna sark arches
Here the tame goes by
some song from Megaritual
Asco que conmueve los puntos
some unknown song that shown up in ipeac series(La tirania?)
Omar was on fire too, he was throwing the best solos I've ever heard from him. You can easily tell he was coming from the Amp recording where he reached a complete new level, you can tell that from the Mecca first solo, or Viscera eyes, much more elaborated solos than his typical pentatonic/chromatic randomness
Does anybody know about this guy? He promised to upload the whole thing..
In the other hand we have 2010 with some important changes. De Antoni brought a much more calmed version of the band, even though it was almost the same line up. Omar was not that much into soloing, but there were some good moments. I think these solos were some kind of a step back from 2009, much more "pentatonic" and less original. But anyway, I we still had Ximena, and some Omar anthems were born like Miel del Ojo or "un buitre amable"
So, if you had the opportunity of assist of a gig from either 2009 or 2010, which would you pick and why?
