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 :
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.

I just previewed the latest album at their official site (audio section), and am listening to the myspace now: 

Thinks for bringing this band to the PAers attention.
