5.00 6

Amazing flute work from the legendary Fajardo – a player who was right up there with Pacheco in his pre-percussion years! The set's got a great sharp edge right from the start – a quality that might well come from the production, but which definitely keeps things from ever sounding too sweet at all – really focusing in on those quick bursts and twists of sound that come from the lead flute lines. Grooves are often nicely staccato – almost a more percussive take on the pachanga generation, given the way the timbales ring out strongly – and titles include "Penicilina", "Una Rosa De Francia", "Una Taza De Arroz", "Liceo Del Pilar", "Meditacion", and "Amalia Batista".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk! The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas ... CD
