Eco (LP, Album + CD, Album).
Eco is the third album produced by Juan Campodónico, Carlos Casacuberta, and Jorge Drexler. The production is warmer than that of Drexler's previous album, Sea. That does not mean electronic arrangements are abandoned, but there's a more balanced guitar/voice sound that works better with his delicate songs. If you are a Drexler fan, you won't find many surprises here, just the spoken word of "Guitarra y Vos," one of the best moments of this album.
Jorge Drexler, a critically acclaimed Uruguayan singer/songwriter, began his recording career in the early '90s but didn't experience mainstream breakthrough success until his seventh album, Eco (2004), and its Oscar-winning song "Al Otro Lado del Rí. Born on September 21, 1964, in Montevideo, Uruguay, he comes from a Jewish family that fled persecution in Germany. He studied to become an otolaryngologist (ear, throat, and nose doctor) like his parents, but ultimately chose to pursue his passion for music.
