LIMITED GATEFOLD COVER EDITION

A RARE MASTERPIECE WITH STRONG DISCO INFLUENCES

A rare jazzy set from the Venezuelan scene at the start of the 80s – but a record that's got a lot more of the warm soulful glow of the best Fantasy Records productions in the Bay Area a few years before – sophisticated in style, but also very down to earth – and with a lot of nice R&B-tinged elements amidst the jazz-based instrumentation! Some cuts are instrumental jazz funk, but there's also a bit of vocals at points – a balance that almost echoes some of the strongest work from Wayne Henderson and the At-Home Productions team.
