Near Future ARTIST: Fermín Fortiz

SEAL: Pitayo Music

PRICE: $ 207 (Available on online music platforms)

Bassist, composer, arranger and educator Fermín Fortiz presents his sixth album, Futuro Próximo, the most personal of his career. A year and a half ago, Fermín changed his residence from CDMX, where he had a stable job as a musician, to Oslo, where there are few opportunities for professionals in the field, which led him to a process of uncertainty, fear, longing and finally , acceptance. Guided by those feelings and the experiences he had during those times of change, the bassist wrote the songs during the harsh Norwegian winter. The result is a concept album that includes duets with the most important bassists on the national jazz scene. A unique job.

The best of the Labelle group’s albums, made up of the singers Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash, was recorded in New Orleans with Allen Toussaint, a fundamental figure in music in the United States, on piano and as a producer, in addition to the participation of the members of the funk group The Meters, including George Porter Jr., Art Neville and Leo Nocentelli, who give the production a sound like no other. Nightbirds, released in 1974, includes Lady Marmalade, which became one of the first disco hits in history, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This song was inducted in 2012 into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Arnold Layne ARTIST: Pink Floyd

SEAL: Sony Music

PRICE: $ 480

In 1967 Pink Floyd released Arnold Layne, their first single, written by Syd Barrett. The last performance of the song was made on May 10, 2007, when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played together during a Barrett tribute concert. Today, that theme is released with the release of this special edition, a 7-inch single disc that has only side A with music, since on the reverse side, on side B, it presents an engraving with the handcuffs that appear on the cover, exclusively designed for this material created by StormStudios. All this makes this a collector’s item, not only for fans of the group, but for vinyl lovers in general.
