Grazing the grass (Una Miradita) – Los Charly’s Orchestra (Release 03-12-12)

Think summers gone? Think again. Party time approaches and this is   festive music to chase away your winter blues! Los Charly’s Orchestra   have hit the spot yet again with this new single, a classic cover of   Grazing In Grass in the style of the iconic 1968 Fania Records/  Orchestra Harlow version featured in the Tarantino movie Jackie Brown.   This is late-20th-century music brought straight to 21st-century   dancefloors. Originally a huge instrumental hit for South African   music legend Hugh Masekela, The Friends of Distinction recorded the   tune with new lyrics and took it high into the US charts in 1969. The   Orchestra Harlow version, led by Larry Harlow (El Judio Maravilloso)   was Salsa in its infancy and a mix of Latin Jazz, Boogaloo,  Latin R&B   and just about every afro-Caribbean rhythm which shaped things to   come. Los Charly’s add new lyrics and bring back the vibrant 1968   sound of  Fania, New York, Harlem and the Bronx, guaranteed to have   you dancing and singing.
