Leprechaun biography
LEPRECHAUN is a Chilean band that aims at the preservation of prog rock from a jazz-rock orientation. The band was founded and led by guitarist José Luis SANTANDER (already experienced in the world of prog as a member of SUBTERRA): he summoned drummer Gonzalo UBILLA and keyboardist Martín SEPÚLVEDA (who has previously played as his supporting band in many guitar festivals), plus bassist Miguel FONSECA (a member of the Universidad de Chile's Big Band). The latter entered the band in early 2007, which meant the installment of the definite line-up. The band's material is projected to catch the attention of informed listeners while being of appeal for wider audiences: the individual tracks are not too expanded, yet they are demanding in terms of melodic arrangement and performance. The jazzy flavors are predominant, combining the energy of classic fusion bands such as RETURN TO FOREVER and WEATHER REPORT with the power of contemporary references such as TRIBAL TECH and PLANET-X. This choice of musical approach makes LEPRECHAUN stand close to compatriot bands PRISMA-X and EVOLUCIÓN.

From early 2007, LEPRECHAUN began writing original material, ending up with a repertoire of CD length one year later: in the middle of 2008, Mylodon Records released their eponymous debut album. In the meantime, LEPRECHAUN had won a contest of new bands organized by the Escuela Moderna de Música.




Why this artist must be listed in www.progarchives.com :
LEPRECHAUN is particularly recommended to fans of jazz-rock, fusion and prog-jazz, especially those who appreciate a dose of sonic power in the genre.

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars From Chile we have here a very interesting instrumental offering by a trully amazing guitar player named JOSE LUIS SANTANDER!He is absolutelly stunning in this project called LEPRECHAUN!The cover art is impressive,catchy and the music is in the same vein!Excellent instrumental work,muscled and with rhythm all the time,driven by a guitar player thet has a strong vision about what exactly he wants to offer!Some prog metal fusion compositions in which Mr Santander proves that the rest of team in 100 % connected to his musical direction!A very monolythic group in which each member has something to say,and each instrumentist seems to perfectly play his role!Great and rich production and every instrument sounds perfect.Not even a weak track,that gives to the listener guaranteed moments of satisfaction in a style that still has many good moments to offer!It's difficult to remark a particular song,because all are excellent and the unity of the album is perfect.All that remain is that Chile has such a dangelrous secret weapon.so well kept and,definitelly LEPRECHAUN deserves a wider recognition and audience!This is fusion prog at the highest level possible,a mixture of Satriani sometimes...crossed with Page and even some Holldsworth there,but a personal touch of Mr Santander everywhere,undoubtedly!LEPREFUNK and LABERINTOS seem to be the highlights of the album,if I had to pick 2 tracks,but I repeat...all compositions are so well worked and near to perfection ,made by a very skilled musician which is in his element in this musical direction! FELICITACIONES MR SANTANDER! 4,5 STARS for an excellent album!

Review by Cesar Inca

4 stars Leprechaun is the name of the new jazz-rock wonder from Chile: the eponymous debut album has to be one of the freshest musical items to come out of South America in 2008, in the area of prog-friendly jazz-rock. Not unlike other Latin American fellow bands such as Prisma-X, Opus 3 or Tórax, Leprechaun's style is based on the modern approach to jazz-rock and heavy prog delivered by CAB, Planet-X and LTE, fused with the 70s tradition stated by Return to Forever and Brand-X, with deep touches of Satriani and Holdsworth. In the case of Leprechaun, the sound is a tad less hard generally speaking, so the Satriani and Holdsworth elements will appear more featured than the Planet-X trend: nevertheless, power and drive and two of the main qualities that make (or should make) the "Leprechaun" album so appealing to the average prog-jazz fan. The number of occasions in which the guitar and the synth double on the leads is very abundant: clearly, this band isn't willing to let the general level of compositional creativity get out of control, there is really an efficient exercise of control in the tracks' deliveries (only a couple of them move past the 4'30" mark). Getting started with the funk-instilled jazzy bombast of 'Analorock' and 'El Lid', both pieces state the stamina-driven facet of the band, with the latter bringing in some typically progressive sophistication to the overall dynamics. 'Fantasmagoria' starts with very soft musical box sounds, but it doesn't take long before the track's main body emerges with its grayish moods that candidly emulate the Gothic ambience of horror b-movies: the Page-meets-Holdsworth guitar phrases fit the precise scheme built by the rhythm duo, while the synths play powerful layers and amazing solos in places. 'Destellos' brings the band's softer side for the first time: a mid tempo for an evocative melodic scheme, this piece sets a mixture of Brand-X and Satriani that develops a slow mood without getting really languid. But 'Despertar' does get languid, with its lyrical approach to romantic moods: the 3/4 tempo is displayed with controlled looseness by the rhythm duo, while Santander states a set of Morse-meets-Latimer guitar leads all over the place. These two tracks represent a moment of beautiful rest, before 'Encuentro Inesperado' brings back some of the groove that had been displayed on the first two tracks: the final result is not as powerful, but there is a slightly more elaborated structure (prog-style), which lays out an interesting air of sophistication. 'Leprefunk' generally fits the previous description: this piece preserves the complex funk-rock scheme masterfully crafted in the preceding track, albeit emphasizing the jazz factor more meticulously, which really helps to enhance the basic jamming motif. '2 Rutas' really does equal the power and dynamics of tracks 1 & 2, and 'Laberintos' almost does the same thing: I wish both tracks had been longer, since their catchiness deserved a bit more of exploration and expansion. Anyway, the album has come to an end sometime, and that's when 'Cicatrices' appears - a soft ballad based on the acoustic guitar's melodic progressions. Well, this isn't exactly the real end. After the 3 minute ballad ends, comes 1+ minute of silence after which a brief blues-rock jam (a hidden track, I suppose) emerges to close the album's door. An excellent album by a talented band, "Leprechaun" is an item destined to be properly appreciated by all jazz-prog fans.
