This is it classic fusion fans--the best (and one of the most obscure) fusion album not released in the US. Bonfa surrounds himself with incredible talent--names like Barretto, Clarke, Brecker, Stamm, Tropea, Deodato, Muhammad, and Airto grace our ears on this explosive record.

This recording is blissed-out funkafied Latin fusion that will make your turntable smoke. The opening side bursts out of the gate, giving way to the more introspective, pastoral second side. This pressing is extremely rare and I would recommend this album to any fan of 70's fusion, latin, Bossa, or even jazz buffs in general. A seminal recording by a seminal artist.

Interesting record, exotica fans would probably like it too.
