(from Dusty Groove)
A sweet set of mellowly funky keyboard jazz from Argentinian pianist Fernando Gelbard! This dream of an album was recorded in the mid 70s -- and features Gelbard playing Fender Rhodes and moog with a lively backing combo. Tracks are long, all original, and have a laidback groove that makes the album a warm and spectacular treat. Percussion is strong on a few numbers, and a few other tracks feature a bit of sax -- but the real focus is on Gelbard's keyboard work, which is mellow and and very soulful. Tracks include "Chau Ambrosio", "Alevacolariea", "Hola Didi", and "El Senor Mayor".

Whoa! Thanks for this monster from Fernando. I love his work, and want to tell you this is one of the great Library records out there simply because it IS so breezy.
