3 stars A few years ago a good friend borrowed me a bunch of Latin-American progrock he received from an Argentine record label. For me it was an excellent opportunity for a further investigation of the captivating Latin-American progrock scene, so often an unique blend of many styles.

Sui Generis is an Argentine band that made many albums, I would like to focus on their most progressive effort entitled Pequenas Anecdotes Sobre Las Instituciones from 1973. Here Sui Generis is a four piece band (including the inevitable keyboard player Charly Garcia who later founded La Maquina De Hacer Pajaros) with additional musicians and they present us wonderful and varied music: every track has its own climate and is loaded with interesting musical ideas and surprising breaks, they often use a wide range of instruments. The one moment the atmosphere is mellow with twanging acoustic guitars, flute, violin or Grand piano, the other moment it is blues with mouth organ or sumptuous symphonic rock with Moog synthesizer flights or beautiful strings. I cannot refer to symphonic rock dinosaurs like Yes, Genesis or Pink Floyd, this is an unique progrock band but you have to be up to moments that are close to soul or other musical styles, indeed, a very progressive musical experience! My rating: 3,5 stars.
