Amar la trama
Released: Mar 2010
Label: WM Spain
To record Amar la Trama, Jorge Drexler rented out a television studio, brought in a live audience and sang to them. It was a shrewd and wonderfully unusual move, which coincided with a step away from his usual electronic set-up to work with a full band, including a horn section. Drexler's voice is an instrument in its own right, and any time it gives up space, you lose some of the intimacy that's so essential to his music. But the trade-off is worth it: We finally get to hear a live band worthy of his poetic songwriting -- elastic, expansive, playful but never overbearing.
