4 stars This is a really enjoyable jazz rock album with flamenco flavor. As in the case of other fusion bands there is no voice which is not a bad thing but the contrary. Sometime maybe it's better to let the instruments speaking and the listener to enjoy.

After a first intro song - Camino del Concierto - we have Ostalinda which is my favorite one. A really good example of jazz rock song as it should be: fast tempos, good mixing of all the instruments and a very good atmosphere. Flor De Almendro - is a guitar/flute driven song which sounds also really good. The albums continues with Esclavos De La Belleza when mainly then man behind the sax demonstrates his abilities(but also the guitars or the drummer). It is the longest song and probably one of the best composition s of Guadalquivir. The other songs have the same level so I invite you to discover them. One observation for - El Vuelo De Una Lagrima - a really romantic song which you will probably want to play in order to make nice atmosphere.

For sure this is nothing very original because the influences from the fusion masters are somehow evident I would say(e.g. Return to Forever, Al Di Meola). But it still remains a very good and well played album and for me this is one of those albums I will probably always like to listen in order to change my mood in a bad day.

So, once again, greetings from Spain from a band which really deserves his place in fusion genre. Give it a try and you will probably also enjoy it.
