3 stars AGHARTA were a Jazz band out of Quebec releasing this sole album back in 1980. A five piece if you include percussionist Michel Seguin who plays on 4 tracks. He was in a band called TOUBABOU previously. I really enjoy the rhythm section and those two are players, really good. I'm just not big on the soloists like the acoustic piano, sax, clarinet, synths and flute. Funny but I don't like the sound of the synths at all but with the flute it's his style. Especially to start the album playing these fancy flute flights(such a lame phrase) but then so is the style here. I don't mind him for the most part the rest of the way. The sax and clarinet are good but I could do without. Oh yeah this is a Jazz record. My favourite part of this record is the start of "Soy" where we get wind and then the drums and urgent sound kick in. That got my attention the first time I heard it but then the piano and sax arrive. Just not a record I'll be playing again despite the obvious talent.
