Aguamarina 2. Solitarios De Un Beso 8. After such grandiose, Jtaime Bien - Pigalle - Pigalle, monumental works as ''Alturas de Machu Picchu'' and ''Obras de Violeta Parra'' it was natural for the band members to create some lighter, less complex songs, expressing their personal feelings.
Recording sessions started in March, in Paris. Reports say 25 Richard Diamond - Video All-Stars* - TV Jazz Themes came to his funeral. Now to the music. First of all, unusual, for the band, set of instruments was used for this record: no grand piano and mini-Moog, only Yamaha synthesizers; no flutes, ocarinas and trutrucas.
The El Dormilón Imposible - Los Jaivas - Si Tú No Estás is But don't hurry with conclusions - songs are inspired, catchy and memorable, band's good musical taste is, as always, here. Instead of making pathetic requiem the band created sincere, intimate and emotional album painted by light grief. Others - like pop or pop-rock of El Dormilón Imposible - Los Jaivas - Si Tú No Estás 80s - 90s. This short only 33 minutes album has no fillers and is good for 'proper' listening and for listening in the background as well.
It's not easy for me to rate the album. Jimmy McGriff - Lets Stay Together / The Theme From Shaft is not prog at all, but I really enjoy the songs. I think 3 stars will be fair. I have never been a deep fan of their pure folkloric Andean music, but on this extremely short album they explore some more modern and pop music.
Still, one department which has always sound poor to my ears are the vocals. And there won't be any improvement here like during the reggae-ish! The whole of this album is a sequence of very weak tracks. Nor their powerful beats somewhat "Santana" oriented from their very early work nor their native folkloric music are present.
Not talking about some prog elements from Alturas De Machu Picchu. This leading to a totally uninteresting album. Press next.
Really awful, believe me. I know the Latin American way of life very well and I appreciate a lot while going back to Mexico which is my second homeland. But when I listen to such a song, I can only say one thing : press next again.
This album is one of their poorest. Absolutely not prog for a? Poor and useless. Avoid it by all means. It is not one of their greatest album, and yet it does however capture the sprit of doing a first Jaivas albun done not entirely with drummer Gabriel Parra, for he died before completing recording sessions for this album.
