A trully ''big'' band coming from Brazil,TERENNO BALDIO were born in 1973 and led by vocalist Joao Furk,guitarist Mozart Mello and keyboardist Robert Lazzarini.It hasn't been cleared yet when their first release came out.Most sources indicate 1975 as the year of their debut's release,though there are references also for year 1974.

Apart from this detail,''Terreno Baldio'' showcases a different side of Brazilian prog.Yes,there are folk influences.Yes,there a few South-American elements and obvious psych traces...but most noteably there are a lot of nice yet smooth interplays and great vocal work contained in here. Certainly,GENTLE GIANT are the closest comparison,starting from the fantastic twisted bass lines,the jazzy and complicated drumming,the beautiful sound of the xylophone and,of course ,the story-telling poetic vocals.However,the vocal harmonies are not so complicated as in GENTLE GIANT's works,yet they are so ethereal and delicate,an ear's heaven.Overall,the musicianship may sound quite mellow,but ,believe me,it is also really demanding and professional with balanced use of piano,organ ,complex guitar parts and the strong presence of a super-tight rhythm section.Short-lived TERRENO BALDIO will leave you undoubtfully a pleasant taste after every listening of their work.Try this other side of Brazilian prog without any hesitation.
