Album artwork for The Jazz EP by Rodrigo Y Gabriela

Mexican acoustic duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are back with their first vinyl release of the new decade. Having successfully launched their ‘Music From The Field’ programme last year, the instrumental rockers are now ready to share the fruits of their online music sessions with a wider audience. The first taste of the Jazz EP is a delicious cover of ‘Street Fighter Mas’ by tenor sax giant Kamasi Washington. Rod says: “It was a no-brainer for us. Kamasi is one of the most exciting jazz musicians out there and ‘Street Fighter Mas’ has such a good groove.” Gab adds: “It was a challenge for us, recreating the instruments with just two guitars, so it became a kind of game. We had to change a few bits and pieces, especially in how I interpreted the drum parts on my guitar.” The EP also features covers of ‘Lingus’ by Snarky Puppy and ‘Oblivion’ by Astor Piazzolla, with a guest appearance by flamenco-guitar legend Vicente Amigo.
