||Caldera "Sky Islands"...my wait is FINALLY over!|
folks who are familiar with this treasure only need to be told that it's now available on CD! Those Latin/jazz fusion lovers who aren't familiar with it, i'd REALLY recommend that you pick up a copy. It's truly one of those rare musical snapshots of artists before they became part of a "who's who in music" Wikipedia entry. George & Eddie Del Barrio, Dianne Reeves, Jorge Strunz (Strunz & Farah), Dean Cortez (Hiroshima), Larry Dunn (EW&F), Steve Tavaglione and others. My personal favorite track is "Triste" which features EXCELLENT guitar & sax work by Strunz and Tavaglione, respectively, against a mesmerizing melody and counter melody. I must admit that the first time that I heard "Ancient Source", I rushed to pick up the album (yes, WAX) and read the credits to find out who was doing the vocal & bass work. I never forgot the names Dianne Reeves and Dean Cortez. I knew that they'd make their marks in music before it was all said and done! Bottom line: The is an often overlooked gem...pick it up! Enjoy!!!

Finally it's on cd. I have searched online for years trying fi find this one. Produced by Larry Dunn of Earth, Wind and Fire fame,this all-star list of players deliver a superb blend of jazz and Latin music with superb horn and guitar solos sure to please. And with the vocals of new artist at the time Dianne Reeves on "Ancient Source" and the smooth sounds of "Triste", you'll be encaptued. One of the best fusion albums ever!
