Cheo: “Todo El Día En la Cama”

A full generation back, José Luis “Cheo” Pardo had already begun building a name for himself as founding guitarist for Venezuelan disco-funk acid-jazz fusers Los Amigos Invisibles, but upon his departure in 2014, his solo potential as Cheo became readily apparent. Cheo’s transparent talent on the six-string isn’t much of a crutch, though, since he’s also comfortable in the producer’s chair, as evidenced by his ever-growing remix repertoire.

This Latin Grammy winner just announced his feature-filled full-length Sorpresa for a 2020 release with its laid back, bossa nova-fueled lead single, “Todo El Día En la Cama”. And honestly, after those terse, politically divisive family conversations, and a cornucopia’s worth of turkey, stuffing and gravy in your belly, what better way to put a cap on Thanksgiving than by staying in bed all day?
