The son of a prominent Nicaraguan politician,
Alfonso Noel Lovo was a choice target for the
Sandinista rebels who hijacked his homeward
flight from Miami in December of 1971,
ultimately putting several rounds through the
talented musician's torso and hand. After several
years, and as many surgeries, he would break
new ground on this psychedelic swirl of Latin
jazz and pan-American funk with his musical
partner, percussionist Jose ''Chepito'' Areas of
Santana fame. Long unavailable, La Gigantona
has lived its forty years lost in the grooves of
a single acetate. Imagine a Nicaraguan take
on Herbie Hancock's Afro-jazz masterpiece
Mwandishi with some of the most penetrating,
left-field guitar you've never heard.
