At the beginning of the 1980s, Señora called both the band and the “jazz record”, which was recorded and mixed by the renowned sound engineer Ansgar Ballhorn in the EMI studios in Cologne. At that time Señora played an extraordinary number of gigs, at many festivals and in many beautiful clubs, such as Hamburg's cult club "Onkel Pö".
After a long break from the band, the label Growing Bin from Hamburg approached the musicians with the idea of releasing the album. And since the original press templates still existed, a reissue album was released that knows how to convince with 100% analog sound, richness of sound and warmth. The first edition was quickly sold out - and a real success in Japan! "A jewel of groove jazz ..." now writes the review. It's kind of strange, because such fusion music was frowned upon as a whole genre for a long time, and it took decades to realize how stupid this rejection was. That only came when u. a. a band called Snarky Puppy "reinvented" this music and suddenly presented the sound that Señora had made as hip again.
