4 stars Accidentally a part of a trilogy, Pájaros de Arcilla continues the line of previous albums Viaje por la cresta del mundo and Ha llegado carta, with saound much more focused on freeforms, improvisation, lost of percusion and aimin to capture the flow of Latinamerica and his sounds, dances and overall rythm. Great for the jazz fusion lovers, and somehow reminding a bit of Flora Purim / Ayrto Moreira kind of sound, this album contains the incredibly beautiful Pájaros de arcilla (Birds of caly) song, a number that sets a melow pause after the northern Voladita nortina (read a bit about diabladas to find out more on this subject), three large and very acomplished jams, much in the vein of previous Ha llegado carta song from the homonimous album, and Alas invasoras, a song that will pretty much give an idea of what is Chilean traditional music like, always in that deconstructive and yet full of emotion approach. The four stars rating is only because previous albums from this line up are just too excelent, and this sounds a bit more loose as a whole. A fine album nevertheless, resulting again in a very articulated archeologic sound document that will inevitably talk you about this southern end of the wolrd.
