Mar De Robles - Mar De Robles (2003)


The debut album from this band from Chile.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, flute, saxophones, keyboards, guitars and vocals.

The band has been described as a jazz/fusion band in some archives and that is why I got their two albums. I like fusion and jazz....... a lot.

I was a bit taken aback when the music on this album jumped out of the speakers.  

Take a big chunk of folk rock from Chile and add lots of hard rock. Then you get somewhere near Jethro Tull... and Mar De Robles.

There is a lot of wild flutes, guitars and Spanish vocals here. The music is very hard at times.

The music is also wild and lively.

The quality is somewhere between decent and good throughout this album. Some more good pieces of music would have benefited this album a great deal. Besides of that, this is an album worth considering.

2.5 points
