La Semana (Remastered)

This album was recorded in 2003 and released by SSRI in 2004. I remastered it in the Fall of 2020. Lossless files are now available for the first time. 16/44.1


On this album I used a more traditional instrumentation. Instead of playing multiple acoustic and electric guitars and lutes, I played a single Flamenco Negra guitar. Instead of lots of drums and percussion, I mostly used the cajon (boxdrum) and Palmas (handclaps). I used no synthesizers at all.

Once again the big landscape of the southwest unfolds in mysterious indigo. Yes, this is a very good album, beautifully composed and recorded in the Santa Fe desert style as defined by OL. - CultureCourt

Obo Cocteau is a story based on the song "Cocteau" [from La Semana], a pure fictional evocation of the composition's moody Moorish atmosphere... and associations made from OL's title.
