5 stars At last! After many efforts I could buy Vivo (Live) the last album made by this excellent chilean band. Really, it's the last because after Jaime Vivanco (keyboards, vocals) died, the members of the band took differente ways. In fact, you could find Cristian Crisosoto, Arlette Jecquier and his daughter Regina under the name of Mediabanda continuing the Fulano legacy and the great bassist Jorge Campos playing with another legendary chilean band, Congreso.

Well, IMO Vivo is a 5 stars album for many reasons. First: Fulano is one of the most innovative band in South America. Second: Their concerts were totally cathartic. Third: The exceptional talent and technique of their musicians. Fourth: the wonderful, raw and even lyrical voice of Arlette Jecquier. Fifth: Fulano in concert was one of the most powerful experiences that I ever had 'cos they sound better on stage than on studio, giving to each song the power of rock mixed with astonishing improvisations taking form the jazz side of the band. Starting with the caothic Krikalev, the album is like a guide to met most of the best songs made by Fulano on their four studio albums, including two songs never released before, Pinocho en Patolandia (a nice piece of jazz) and Todas las ratas de todos los ríos del mundo (6:05). Basura sounds great (specially the hilarious bass intro). The best two songs of the album are the jazzy Nena, no te vayas a Chimbarongo. and Suite Recoleta a piece that sounds better with the pass of the years just like the wine.

In each song you can find the unique Fulano style that mixes rock, jazz, avant gard, some drops of prog, but overall the sense to listen music make with heart and emotions.
