Straight after his experience together with Generacion Cero, Rodolfo Mederos recorded a new album with a totally different musician line-up, albeit still maintaining the same ideas and sonority of his previous studio output. "Todo hoy" represents one of the best exercises in genius and creative liberty ever displayed by this true artist, by blending Tango, Jazz and Progressive Rock. The album also includes as bonus track a composition that compiles the music from the film "Crecer de golpe", which was written by himself back in 1977.
Filled with live performances, obscurities, album tracks, and a new song apiece from Bill Payne and Paul Barrere, Hoy-Hoy! is a bit scattered, a bit incoherent, a little bewildering, and wholly delightful – a perfect summation of a group filled with quirks, character, and funk, traits which were as much a blessing as they were a curse. Hoy-Hoy! is one of those rare albums that may be designed for diehards – who else really needs radio performances, early recordings from before the band was signed, and outtakes, especially if they're surrounded by early album tracks? – but still is a great introduction for novices.
