Product Description

MARANATA-70sRare, funky easy,jazzy Grooves from Uruguay





Beware¿ this album is a TRUE REVELATION! The only album recorded (in the  Phase 8!) by this Uruguayan band, formed by Roberto Giordano, bass player of TOTEM (see our release VAMPI035 LP/CD), with the first plain intention of making some extra money by playing hits or classics from the times -mixed with songs of their own- in wedding or private parties and TV shows. The record itself was recorded in order to be sold in those ¿events¿. Musically, there are echoes from CAL TJADER, DEODATO, HENRI MANCINI, BILLY COBHAM... But in a Candombe Beat key: utterly rhythmic and contagious! This is one of the most fabulous and rarest ¿Rare Grooves¿ ever released! The original copy of this album does not even appear on any website and we fear that, did a well preserved copy finally appear, its price in euros could have 3 zeroes on it... With liner notes and pictures.

Sweet 70s grooving from South America -- the only album ever recorded by this great little group from Uruguay! The set was done at the end of the 70s, but it's got a style that recalls the best electric work from the US and UK at the start of the decade -- sort of a blend of funky easy, jazzy instrumentals, and some of the hipper styles of the sound library scene! There's a sweetness to many of the tunes, to be sure -- but they've also got a snapping rhythm that's mighty nice, and plenty of great bits on guitar, keyboards, and just a hint of funky flute and sax -- plus some occasional Latin rhythms that change things up nicely. The overall sound almost reminds us of some of those early 70s Brazilian groups that would offer up their take on a European instrumental groove -- such as Super Erotico -- but the end result is also a bit more funky too! Titles include the great originals "El Ladron" and "Maranata" -- plus versions of "Charlies Angels", "Song For My Father", "Carly Carola", and "Primal Scream".


also available as an LP on heavy vinyl.
