Excellent addition to any Prog-Rock music collection
This one is the jewel of Symphonic and Psychedelic-Rock from Latin America in the early seventies.
The name of the band was “Frutos Del País”, and I could compare their music with Procol Harum, which is clearly their main influence.
Two stars together: Jonh Wetton (King Crimson, UK, Asia, etc.) and Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music), in this interesting work!
Along time ago, I bought this LP from “The Moody Blues”, because it appears the original single “Nights In White Satin”.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A beautiful set from Sonny Fortune – a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still with a deeply soulful finish that keeps the album fresh throughout! Nearly every track was written (or co-written) by Larry Willis, who plays piano and Fender Rhodes on the set, and really feels like Sonny's co-leader on the session – and who gives the album a hiply swinging feel that's similar to his own work at the time. Titles include "Samba Touch", "Perihelion", "This Side Of Infinity", "Turning It Over", and "The Blues Are Green".
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A great one from Sonny Fortune – done with the fusiony sound he was working so well with at the time, and still filled with a tight conception and an incredible group of musicians who bring depth and deliver some really great solos! The title track is an incredible 10 minute cut that breaks into a beautiful modal groove about 4 minutes into it – and that groove is completely wonderful. It's far from the only high point of a set filled with them. Players include Kenny Barron on Fender Rhodes, Woody Shaw on coronet & flugelhorn, Gary King on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, Sammy Figueroa on congas, Rafael Cruz on percussion, and Sonny doing his thing on flute, piccolo and sax. Other tracks include "Bacchanal", "Never Again Is Such A Long Time", "There's Nothing Smart About Being Stupid" and "The Afro-Americans".
