Spanish term or phrase: segunda matriz
This is an Argentine artist remembering early musical influences:

Quince o veinte años después, cuando descubrí que el jazz era otra cosa y Bix Beiderbecke era respetado como un músico verdaderamente singular, me fascinó el contraste entre la masa orquestal de estos mismos viejos discos y la sorprendente aparición del milagro de Bix. Otros diez o veinte años después, cuando escuché por primera vez la segunda matriz de Sugar, lloré

I couldn't find a reference to "Sugar" that includes this, but here is a reference to one of Beiderbecke's other works.
"The two takes of "Loved One" don’t differ a great deal, but the second take finds Bix sounding more alert, despite his failing health and general decline."
