Fermata - Huascaran (mini-lp sleeve / SHM-CD)

SKU Belle Antique 142253
Czechoslovakian fusion band from the 70's, this was their third, from 1977. I think it holds up extremely well - the playing is quite hot & feverish & is definitely comparable to some of the better bits of Finch.... boy, were these guys ever under-rated!

"The third album by the king band of Slovekian prog, Fermata's "Huascaran" is one of the most accomplished works ever recorded in the realm of jazz-oriented prog rock. Being a concept album around the tragedy of Huascaran's deadly eruption (back in 1970), this album evokes ideas of destruction, power and solidarity with multiple colors and moods, all of them properly delivered through effective musical ideas and solid, tight performances. Fermata is very heavily influenced by the powerful dynamics of Mahavishnu Orchestra and special exuberance of Di Meola-era return to Forever, but there is also some important room for the delivery of soaring moods in the vein of space-rock and classic nuances on a symphonic-related note. ... Fermata is a name that must be included in any good prog collection and/or good jazz collection, with "Huascaran" being one of its most distinguished assets. Indeed, this is a masterpiece."-progarchives
