Original mexican LP issued in 1976on Nueva Cultura, and released in Mexico only. The group is composed of some of the best musicians from the jazz and also funk Mexican scene (as you can see on the line-up below), who also participated to projects like the now famous "Rabbits & Carrots" and other underground gems. This record is a real jazz masterpiece, at the same level as Nil's Jazz Ensemble, Candeias etc...
