Arco Iris - Desde El Jardín (2012)

The 13th and final album from this band from Argentina.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of percussion, drums, bass, guitars, pan flutes, saxophones, flutes and synths.

They were helped by a handful of guests who provided charango, guitars, cello and bass.

This band had served the community with distinction since the early 1970s and they were winding down with some pan flute dominated fusion.

Well, folk rock and pop dominated fusion, that is.

The music is pretty light and fluffy. 

It is OK music but the music is not a reminder of the great band who did those two double albums in the 1970s and set the standard for South American progressive rock.

This is a decent enough album from a band who should be remembered with affection and pride in the progressive rock scene.
