3 stars Here is a Brasilian one shot band with their debut CD Gargula. They are assisted by the Brasilian Symphonic Orchestra (flute, oboe, fagot and cello), especially the opener Abertura features these classical musicians along bombastic keyboards. On the rest of this strong album you can enjoy a dynamic blend of classical, jazzrock and symphonic rock. The level of the musicians is high and the compositions sound alternating: sensitive electric guitar and flute in Zenith, harpsichord in the titletrack, wonderful interplay between cello and violin in Notorno, mandolin in Runas and a bass soli in Kaizen. All songs are loaded with soli on keyboards, guitar and violin (electric, acoustic and MIDI), played by ex-Quaterna Requiem member Kleber Vogel (often evoking JL Ponty). If you don't have a problem with the frequent soli, this CD is a fine discovery!
