4 stars I found Litto Nebbia's previous album, "Bazar de los Milagros" to be a bit of a letdown. There were a few progressive elements, but not many. Mostly, it was an album of latin flavored jazz. Not bad, but mostly uninteresting.

But on this album, Nebbia has returned to form. There is more than a hint of Canterbury styled jazz rock fusion here, and even a piano solo that seems to look to good old Keith Emerson for inspiration.

These are finely executed pieces, with changing themes, time signature play, and and well crafted solos. I particularly like the keyboard sounds he uses. They evoke the classic Todd Rundgren albums in my ears.

3 stars Felix Francisco Nebbia (aka Litto Nebbia) is an experienced, pivotal and acclaimed musician in Argentina, especially in the world of rock, jazz, rock, prog and fusion. He released many solo albums, this review is about the album El Vendedor De Promesas from 1977.

Litto his huge array of keyboards is a "vintage keyboard's wet dream": Fender Rhodes electric piano, Steinway Grand piano, Hohner D-6 clavinet, Moog - and ARP synthesizers and the string-ensemble. He also plays acoustic - and electric guitar and is a singer too, what a versatile musician.

Litto his band features a contra bass player, a drummer/percussionist and a writer. The music on this album sounds very pleasant and alternating: between swinging parts with electric piano and clavinet and mellow parts with piano and string-ensemble, along fluent synthesizer flights. Although the vocals parts are OK, I am mostly delighted about the instrumental interludes.

My rating: 3,5 star.
