Joe Cruz and the Cruzettes

Listen

PINOY GROOVE EXPERIENCE (Philippine Popular Music Revisited):

Araw-Araw, Gabi-Gabi - Joe Cruz and the Cruzettes (1975)

Quintessential Manila show band, Joe Cruz and the Cruzettes were the house band for the Manila Hyatt-Regency Hotel during the 70’s and recorded several LP’s for the Vicor Music Corp.  Their blend of Latin Jazz and Bossa Nova recall the bands of Sergio Mendez while their pop influences conjure up the harmonies of the 5th Dimension.  That sound is no more apparent as in this Bossa / Cha Cha track written by Willy Cruz (Producer) and Ernie de la Pena.  Starting with a slightly out of place synthesizer intro but quickly going into the Bossa rythym and then Cruzette’s dreamy harmonies.  The track will transport you to a 1975 lounge at the Manila Hotel sipping cocktails and carousing with locals and tourists into the wee hours.
