4 stars This band from Spain plays some incredible sounding Jazz / Fusion with some absolutely amazing guitar and drumming throughout this all instrumental album. The keyboards actually dominate the sound much of the time. Some good variety on this record as well.

"Preldi I Record" is a 2 minute intro track that gets us warmed up for what's to come. Very laid back and enjoyable song with synths and guitar leading the way. Some great bass lines as a Flamenco flavour joins in then back to the original melody. "Nova" ups the ante considerably. Lots of atmosphere early with electric piano and synths.The intricate drumming is great as the sound builds.The guitar is so impressive as well as the bass playing. Lots of tempo and mood shifts in this one. Outstanding track ! "L'acustica" is fairly haunting for the first 3 minutes then intricate guitar, synths and drums take over. Some nice piano melodies follow. Themes are repeated.

"Lad'en Kitflas" has electric piano and fast paced guitars until it all stops and some slower paced bass playing comes in. It is joined by drums and guitar as the fast paced guitar melody comes back. "La Flamenca Electrica" is a great tune.The guitar sounds incredible as bass comes in and intricate drum patterns. Again the guitar sounds amazing. Lots of synths too. So much going on at times. "A Valencia" is another favourite of mine. Keys to open as cymbals and guitar create a pastoral soundscape for 1 minute. Nice contrast throughout this song between the quiet and the loud passages. Check out the keyboards and drumming 6 minutes in. Fantastic stuff. The final song "11 / 8" opens with an impressive drum solo then the guitar comes flying in.The guitar is jaw droppingly good !

Hey, if your into Fusion this is a must. 4 solid stars.
