3 stars In 1979 the Venezulean band Tempano made a beautiful album with echoes from Camel and Happy The Man. At about 18 years later the French progrock label Musea has invited Tempano to re-release their album on CD with the addition of 3 new tracks. These were recorded in 1998 and last for a total time of 25 minutes. The 3 new tracks showcase a dynamic and skillful band: "KTR") powerful rhythm and organ), "Un nuevo encuentro" (soaring keyboards and wonderful guitarwork) and "Arbol de la vida" (fiery electric guitarplay with hints from Jeff Beck). The 6 compositions from the original album feature many accellarations with lost of splendid interplay between the elctric piano and electric guitar. Some contain vocals in Spanish and nice interludes featuring strings or growling bass (often fretless). If you are up to strong and dynamic symphonic jazzrock/fusion this CD is yours. A BAND TO DISCOVER!
